We had pre-booked and paid for sunset cruise but unfortunately our outing was cancelled due to bad weather. Our refund was dealt with very promptly and efficiently by very friendly staff. If we are back in the area in the future we would definitely try again!

What a lovely, relaxing experience. Travelling out to the Knysna Heads, eating fabulous oysters and drinking great South African White wine. Steve was a star, both informative and humorous. The sunset was spectacular, a memory to last a lifetime.

The sunset cruise was a great experience! Steven is very knowledgeable about the area and we learnt a great deal about the history of the Knysna Heads. The oysters and wine were amazing and the scenery was beautiful - definitely a good way to end the day.

My wife and I had a Oyster Tour with Steven. He made this tour unforgettable by his good spirit and the interesting explanations. The oysters eaten as appetizers on board were followed by 2 dozens in the Quai Four Restaurant. Delicious!

Thank you to Steven, captain of the boat. we had a unbelievable day out at the Knysna Heads. It was sooooo beautifull. The oysers on board together with the wine was out of this world, I would recommend if you ever are in Kynsna this is a tour you must not skip. A very educational trip to be remembered.

Captain Steve made this cruise very enjoyable. His knowledge of the lagoon area was interesting and he was very friendly and chatty. We cruised along and had wine and oysters whilst chilling and checking out the lovely scenery. All in all a pleasant experience.

We had a beautiful day cruising to the heads and into them in Knysna. Steve our skipper was knowledgeable and extremely competent in handling his boat.

The well informed guide (Stephen) gripped our attention with informative stories of the history of knysna's lagoon. While pointing out the places of interest surrounding the laggon. After explaining how oysters are cultivated he then showed us how to open oysters and we ate oysters to our hearts content. Overall a great tour conducted by a great bunch of people.
