Alec took us out on the trip. He is a very nice guy and knows the area and his oysters. It was very special and personal with only Alec, my wife and myself on the boat. It was a great experience!

Boikanyo Mothibatsela

Great tour, friendly and very knowledgeable guide. Would definitely recommend.

Karen Sampson

Lovely tour with a very good guide , oysters and wine were lovely, small group of only 5 persons so lots of room on the boat


You’ll discover Knysna on the Garden Route; it’s charmingly set between the Knynsa Lagoon, Indian Ocean and the Knysna forest.
