Owner description: Our coastal town of Knysna and Oysters go together like champagne and caviar, sea and sky, summer breezes and cold beers ... if you're more than a little intrigued by oysters, then join us for the ultimate oyster experience on the spectacular Knysna Lagoon. Learn all there is to know about one of the world's most loved delicacy, taste the difference between wild and cultivated oysters, all whilst cruising the lagoon to the Heads and surrounds. Ask questions, take photo's, excite your taste buds - all on board our "Oyster Boat" with a small group of guests. The cruise includes complimentary local white wine and oysters for tasting. Extra oysters are available on pre-order to enjoy on the boat. Cruise includes an oyster educational experience, complimentary white wine, and half a dozen fresh oysters per person.

We enjoyed a pleasant afternoon cruise touring the harbour area and learning to shuck oysters. The tour includes wine and 6 oysters per person. There were only 2 couples on board so we had really personalized service. it's a casual experience and was a nice alternative to more typical cruises..

A great way to learn more about oysters and enjoy the freshest oysters you will ever taste with a beverage of your choice purchased from their bar.

We had booked on an eco tour of the lagoon but turned up only to be told that as not enough people had booked the tour was cancelled. So we walked around the corner to find the "Oyster Tour" just departing. What fun! The tour guide Alex had a great sense of humour and we had a trip around the lagoon out to the Heads, we ate a few oysters and drank a little wine. It certainly wasn't a serious trip just a bit of fun so I guess if you really want to know about the life cycle of the oyster it probably isn't for you but if you want to see the spectacular lagoon from a boat its a great trip.

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.

It was billed as a sunset champagne and oysters tour on the leaflet but there was only wine served. Also the leaflet said the tour would go out to the Knysna Heads but we didn't even get close, with no explanation offered. Overall duration was also shorter than advertised.
The guide Carl was friendly and well-informed.
