Knysna Oyster Tour
- About 2 hours
Our coastal town of Knysna and Oysters go together like champagne and caviar, sea and sky, summer breezes and cold beers. If you're more than a little intrigued by oysters, then join us for the ultimate oyster experience on the spectacular Knysna Lagoon.
Learn all there is to know about one of the world's most loved delicacy, taste the difference between wild and cultivated oysters, all whilst cruising the lagoon to the Knysna Heads and surrounds.
Ask questions, take photo's, excite your taste buds - all on board our "Oyster Boat" with a small group of guests. The cruise includes complimentary local white wine and oysters for tasting. Extra oysters are available on pre-order to enjoy on the boat.
Cruises depart daily from the jetty in front of Sirocco Restaurant, Thesen Island. Please remember your camera, sunblock, sunhat and wind breaker (just in case!).
And remember - our boat is perfect for families and children of all ages are welcome.

I booked a honeymoon sunset cruise for my wife and myself, and wow, was I amazed. I have to be honest, at first I was taken a bit back by the boat, but once we got going everything changed. Our guide (I forgot his name but he's been living in Knysna for 15 years) was absolutely amazing and made this trip so special. We were given such cool info, taken to beautiful spots all around the lagoon and then treated to fresh oysters and white wine.
You are then dropped off at the doorstep of Scirocco's which is an amazing seafood restaurant and our table was perfectly placed with a stunning view.
I could genuinely recommend this experience to anyone interested.
The staff was super friendly and a joy to be around. Keith who took us on the tour was informative as well. Great trip.
