A lunchtime, leisurely cruise on the MV John Benn. Well worth doing which take you up to mouth of the lagoon. On previous visits I have seen dolphins in the lagoon but not on this occasion.

Travelling to this destination was a bit far especially if you coming from Cape Town but its all worth it. The People and surrounding areas are worth exploring and I will be coming to visit soon again.

The lagoon is actually an estuary and the second biggest after St Lucia in KZN. It is well worth a visit either with a private boat or paddle steamer.

The lagoon itself is lovely, but of course it has become a tourism magnet, with hundreds of holiday homes on Thesen Island and round most of the lagoon.

Mussels, oysters, fresh fish, warm water and an idyllic view, the lagoon is a small paradise for everybody. I recommend to rent a boat or make a small tour in the lagoon.
