Art Route

The unique beauty of Paternoster has attracted a colourful and diverse group of artists to our village. The Paternoster Art Route launched in July 2018 to create a platform for its artists to showcase their talent and work. The Route encourages visitors to meet the artists, view their art and enjoy exploring all that Paternoster has to offer along the way.

Sandpiper Yacht Charters

Meet us at the Port Owen Marina in Velddrif and we’ll take you places where the ocean is majestic and the skies are blue. Our yacht, the Sandpiper 2, a sleek, spacious, high performance 39ft catamaran, features comfort and safety one can all too easily get used to. Our skipper, Alan Biesheuvel, is a highly experienced seaman and well respected in the area. If dolphins are frolicking nearby he’ll find them for you and should a brisk Southeaster set in on the way back port you might even experience the exhilaration of flying across the water at 40km per hour! Whether you’re in the mood for fish & chips, snacks and a sundowner, a braai aboard the yacht or swim and suntan on the beach, we have it all! Booking is essential.
