I am glad I went on the oyster tour. It was easy to find the meeting place and it was easy to find free parking nearby. The tour was great too. We went quite a few places and there were good stories about the things that we saw, shipwrecks and other things. We learned about oysters of course and got to eat some. It went well with the wine!

I love how they explain everything about oyster and the lagoon area. Ask them anything, they know the answers. Such a delightful boat ride with oysters

Really nice experience and our Skipper Benjamin was a great host with good knowledge especially of the sea and moved us several times to ensure a comfortable afternoon!

Note it is a smaller boat than you may expect for the price but the skipper/host of the tour really knew Knysna's history and that of oysters too. So overall i would recommend doing this tour.

The oyster tour was a lot of fun, we enjoyed getting to go out in the Knysna Bay and the oysters were unlike any we had ever tasted!
