Disappointing if you wanted to know about or see oyster farming. Great if you want a glass of cheap wine, a few oysters from a bag and a trip round the bay.

We all enjoyed going on a relaxing oyster trip around Knysna Lagoon learning how to use a sharp knife and glove in order to extract an oyster from its shell, adding lemon and then eating the oysters with white wine. Very pleasant tour.
