“Unique way to see the harbour”
Reviewed 10 February 2016

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..

“Interesting and informative”
Reviewed 8 February 2016

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.

“Impromptu!”
Reviewed 4 February 2016

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.

“Boat ride with a glass of wine & oysters”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 via mobile

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.

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed 29 December 2015

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.
