      Much more than what we expected
      With Ashley our deck captain and Johannes our Skipper, we took on this experience to explore the ocean beyond the Knysna heads. We saw the immense power of the ocean having carved out deep caves into the rocks, and the whale fin-shaped rock towering as if a natural statue amidst the gushing waves. Shortly into our exciting haphazard approach of the higher waves, Ashley spotted a whale. Much to everyone's surprise, upon following this huge giant, we learnt about their "footprints" in the water, and could assist in spotting another smaller creature. This time it turned out to be the whale's calf. Johannes' skill to see and follow them both,whilst pointing out the seals and even a hammerhead shark, was remarkable. We made a turnaround at Buffalo Bay from where we could again appreciate the beautiful coastline, and then heading back to the jetty, carefully navigating through the treacherous rocks at the Heads. This was an unforgettable experience and we'll be certain to return again soon.

      Great experience
      Was a beautiful experience. The team onboard were so helpful and considerate. Really went out of their way to may us feel comfortable and enjoy! Was the perfect day ant sea and were lucky to see some dolphins! The “lunch” was more of a snack but it was delicious and we had a great time.

      Highlight of our holiday
      This trip was well worthwhile. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There were 5 couples on the boat, and although the sea was rough we felt safe. We were very lucky to spot a humpback whale with calf who breached several times for us. Also saw 2 different dolphin pods

      Incredible to see humpback whales up close
      The tour was well organised and staff were friendly. You are not guaranteed to see whales, as nature can't be planned! But the skipper and watchers worked hard to ensure we saw whales. We saw a couple of singular whales at a bit of a distance, then right near the end of the trip we found a whole group of humpbacks. The skipper gave us a longer trip to allow us to view them properly at a close distance and follow them for a good amount of time, which was greatly appreciated. An amazing experience, would definitely recommend!

      Whales are awesome creatures
      Wasn’t sure about going initially due to the cost and thinking it was unlikely to see any whales, but how wrong i was….the trip was worth every penny and the whales really didn’t disappoint, not just humpback whales but seals and dolphins too. A great fun boat ride experience which does require some seaworthy tummy, so eat sensibly and take some ginger tablets if you are prone to seasickness. The big ocean is choppy and boats rocks !! I would absolutely recommend this trip with Ocean Defender to anyone who visits Knysna. The best thing I did on my holidays whilst staying here.

      Whale watching in Knysna
      Great experience from beginning to end. The team were incredibly helpful when booking and really welcoming when we arrived. The briefing before we left was informative and safety was a priority. We saw two Humpback Whales with their calves as well as a Southern Right Whale, also with her calf (we saw all of these several times). We also saw a pod of dolphins just relaxing near the shore, a few seals who were interested in our boat and an Albatross. Our guide was really informative and we learnt a lot about the whales, dolphins, seals and their lives along the coast of South Africa. The team were really concerned about the welfare of the animals and their space was always respected. Would certainly recommend. This company also have a great coffee shop when you return which is well worth a visit!

      Fantastic experience - 5 ⭐️
      This was a great experience from start to finish. The safety briefing was very comprehensive and the skipper and crew on the boat were fantastic. Yes I was lucky enough to see a whale and her calf as well as dolphins and seals however the view, the experience was worth every penny irrelevant. Bucket list day out, ticked off, thank you to everyone at Ocean Odyssey, you are simply fab.

      They also have a watchman somewhere high up on a lookout to spot the whales. We saw 2 whales at different spots. We enjoyed it very much.

      Terrible!
      We have booked three paddle boards just one hour before the start time (booked at 15:00 for the start time at 16:00). Rushed there, but, when we came, were advised to not paddle because of weather conditions. Why not just inform about this in time instead of just wasting our time?

    This was a fabulous experience, we were so well looked after. It was calm in the lagoon but we were given modern life jackets before heading out to sea. Drinks could be bought on the journey out & then once back in the lagoon we had a fabulous spread of delicious food with a couple of glasses of bubbly. The crew told us all about the local area. Sadly didn’t see any wildlife except for birds. We were fortunate to have a sunny day & a beautiful sunset. So brilliant, would recommend.

    I personally loved the trip, whilst my wife didn't enjoy it as much, absolutely no fault if an amazing crew.Alex,Eric and Nigel. They were brilliant, Alex a exceedingly competent sailor, and also great story teller of his adventures. The head was rather choppy which my wife didn't enjoy and the seating wasn't comfortable for her, whilst I found it great and exciting. We both though enjoyed the buffet and bubbly and talking to Alex was a pleasure. Thank you all for a really memorable trip

    We had an amazing time. I would recommend anyone to Do that at least one time while you stay in Knysna. Ashley and Sandy were the best Crew and we had a lovely time together. The sea and the Lagoon View are stunning and the snacks and bubbly just right for the beautiful scenery. We enjoyed our time together very much and appreciate their efforts to make the most out of this beautiful Trip. Thank you so much. We hope to be back for whale watching season.

    Such fun with a fun crew. Sails up and out through the Heads for a very pleasant sail down the coast. Back inside the lagoon and a light finger buffet served on the deck with champagne. Because it was NYE, drinks were free.
    Great crew and lots of interaction and banter. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    This was one of the highlights of our stay in Knysna. Our lodgings recommended this trip and the booing process was simple and clear. We booked the sunset cruise and Nick was an excellent host for the small group of 4 on our trip. Sadly the clouds didn’t play ball so the sunset didn’t happen but close sightings of whales and dolphins were amazing. Some nice snacks and drinks and good company on the sail made this trip very memorable.

    Short trip out to sea from the heads was an amazing experience and would recommend this to anyone travelling to Knysna
