Oyster Tour

Knysna

Activity Description

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 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.
Cruise includes an oyster educational experience, complimentary white wine, and half a dozen fresh oysters per person.

Cruises depart daily from our Activity Desk at 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.
