Our skipper Alex was awesome. Very knowledgeable and professional. The tour was very pleasant and the oysters and wine delicious. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was also nice there were only four of us on the boat and they still went out.

Just had the most awesome trip on the Knysna Lagoon. Alex was so knowledgable about the area and shared such interesting facts. He is a master oyster shucker and kept us hydrated with lovely South African wine

What an idilic trip - slowly cruising along the estuarine, magnificent view of the Heads, and then oysters and champers (bring your own) on the way back !! Great for those who want a chilled, scenic, sunset tour

Salty Indian Ocean Sea...I also sometimes think the oysters are to salty. But as you saw we extracted the oysters straight from the ocean and they are as fresh and you can get....however different currents and different weather conditions affect the taste of oysters...Come again...More
