Putted around the lagoon for about 90 mins. Benches on the side and in the front for the passengers and blankets were there if needed. Before the tour we were asked if we liked oysters and wine. We don’t drink wine so they got us some coke zero instead which was very nice of them. Alex, our pilot was nice and friendly and showed us how to shuck oysters. Had about 6 oysters each but they were small and very salty. Alex also explained the sites as we went around the lagoon, the birds and close to the Heads. Although I didn’t enjoy the oysters as much as I thought I would, I still enjoyed the trip very much.

“great boat ride with more oysters then we could eat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2017

we had great fun on that boat while drinking wine champagne and oysters. The guy was really friendly and the oysters were fresh and we could try to open them ourselves. Even when the guy forgot the champagne glasses, it was such fun to organize the glasses from a hotel nearby.

“Ok but not quite what we expected ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2017 via mobile

Lovely team, welcoming and friendly and we had a nice time. The tour did fulfil the description of oysters, wine and lagoon tour. However there was not a lot of info on the oysters at all and the lagoon tour was very stately and could have shown us more. In retrospect I would have preferred to have oysters in one of the local restaurants and spent my money on a more interesting boat ride.

“A small boat, nice captain and good oysters !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2017

The boat tour is a pleasant way to watch the coast from the water, come closer to the Knysna Heads and enjoy some reallly fresh oysters on board. The captain was very enthusiastic, had good humour and good stories. We can recommend this trip : good value for money !

“tour the lagoon in luxury of a boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2017

the best experience for local tours of the lagoon by boat. this is value for money guided tours, in which you get to experience the first hand care by tour operators from knysna
