Knysna Sunset Cruise


Activity Description

There is no better way to end off the day – enjoying wine and oysters on a relaxing boat cruise and taking in the magnificence of Knysna as our African sun starts to set over the lagoon. Indulge your inner romantic and join us onboard our “Oyster Boat” as we head off slowly towards the impressive Knysna Heads, and take in the splendor of the tranquil lagoon as the sun sets on another perfect day in Africa. Relax while you enjoy a glass of wine with a few fresh local oysters. The cruise is slow and leisurely, ultimately relaxing and one can’t help but just sit back, and take it all in! The sunset cruise is a fully guided cruise and is inclusive of complimentary white wine and oysters for tasting.

Cruises depart daily from Experience Knysna Curio Shop next to Sirocco Restaurant , on 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.

Im so glad that we get the chance to review the cruise , because we had an amazing time and is still talking about it. The tour guide is so well informed and his knowledge of the area is astonishing. We felt like royalty enjoying the oysters and wine while the guide had as laughing and relaxing with his fine humour. It was worth every sent and we will do this again when we visit Knysna in future. But in the meantime we will also promote your tours amongst friends and family. Your tour guide deserves a raise... Keep up the good work - Lizl Etsebeth
