Advantage Tours and Charters was the first KZN tour operating company who, in 2010, applied for the FTTSA ( Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa) standard. And we were the first to comply with all the requirements by National and Provincial Government to comply with all EPA and environmental standards:


Vessels built under SAMSA survey, keeping in mind the comfort and safety of our clientele

Four(4)-stroke EPA friendly engines

Qualified guides who have undergone all the Passenger Endorsement practices and courses

Feel comfortable in the knowledge that your clients are on a boat that is a legal iSimangaliso Wetland Park concessionaire. Our average monthly concession fee to iSimangaliso is R29 000-00 p/month. These are fees which increase per annum and go towards the uplifting of the community; to upgrade Park furniture and infrastructure and employ and train people from the local disadvantaged community.
