Lovely tour with stunning views and the best oysters ever
We had a lovely time with Alex our captain. He was really kind to us and our child and he had some nice information on the way. Lovey views and the best oysters we’ve ever had!

Entertaining boat trip
Easy going, entertaining trip around Knysna Lagoon, with knowledgeable and humorous guide. Taken to the head of the Lagoon where the Indian Ocean awaits before heading back to base.

Beautiful Sunset Tour
75 minute tour across the lagoon with a very knowledgeable guide - rounded off by a glass of white wine and a few oysters, what better way to end another beautiful day in South Africa. The lagoon is really best viewed from the water with a guide who can give some background on environment, animals, history etc. Highlight of the tour was the visit from a seal which came very near our boat - to the delight of our kids. Very good value for money at less than 1000 Rand for two adults and two kids - definitely recommended.

Lovely Knysna sunset cruise!
Our skipper and captain, Alex (born in Zimbabwe) took us on a leisurely sunset cruise after a great busy day along the Garden Route. What a friendly and charming young chap! And well informed about the area and the sights along the lagoon edge. The trip on the boat to the heads was very comfortable and there were even a few "blankies" to protect the ladies from the cool air! After a turn at the heads, Alex surprised us with some fresh oysters with all the required trimmings - great little spoil to round off a nice trip on a comfortable boat. Great job Alex! Everyone enjoyed chatting to you!

Smooth Sailing!
We had the most amazing tour in the middle of the winter - the weather was nice and the lagoon was calm. The guide entertained us with stories about Knysna and the Lagoon and old wrecks hiding under the water. He told us the history of Oyster farming in Knysna and even showed us the evidence of it. He gave us ample time to take too many beautiful photos and rounded our tour of with the most delish Sauv Blanch. I cannot wait to do this again. On a side note, my husband is not a fan of water and the whole team made it very easy for him to be super comfortable and he felt save the whole time. Well done team! #knsynarises

Best Oyster experience
This is the best Oyster experience you can get. A must do if you are in Knysna and love Oysters. Alex is one of the best guides you can get, such a nice guy. He is very informative, tells you interesting stuff. The best part is you get the freshest Oysters on the boat to enjoy. And the best tasting ones as well.

Fun staff day out on the Lagoon
We booked Knysna Charters for a staff day out for some team building and a little adventure. From the start Knysna Charters were very professional with our date changes and other requests. The skipper and assistant were very friendly and good communicators telling us everything about the lagoon and the history of the area. Highly recommended for group outings.

Excellent Oyster Cruise
My boyfriend and I booked for the 3pm Oyster Cruise, and it was the highlight of our time in Knysna! We had the boat to ourselves, as we were the only booking. Our guide, Alex, was exceptionally knowledgeable about the wild life, tides, foliage, houses, and history of the area! Once we reached the Knysna heads, we turned to calmer waters and had a lovely meal of Cape Coastal oysters and white wine on the boat, and Alex shucked the oysters for us himself. It was a truly delightful cruise that took about 1.5 hours. I highly recommend it for oyster lovers!

Great experience
We took part in the Kynsna lagoon oyster tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a great experience. This tour is well worth doing, especially if you haven't tried oysters before and you don't know where to start. The scenery was spectacular, the history and info about Knysna was very interesting.

This was a ninety minute cruise between 17.00 and 18.30 (not quite sunset) around the Knysna Lagoon, from Thesen Island to The Heads and back. There was an amount of bird-life to be seen, although nothing aquatic, and we were supplied with a couple of glasses of wine together with a generous supply of oysters. Altogether, a very pleasant way to spend some time on a beautiful sunny early evening.
