“Not to be missed experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

A wonderful evening sunset cruise - and as the weather conditions were favourable we were able to go through the Knysna Heads. Karl was a fantastic skipper and everyone on board enjoyed the experience..

“Personal and informative - great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Karl took us on a cosy and lovely sunset ride on his boat that he built himself. As boat builder, fisherman and tourist guide he had lots of interesting stories and anecdotes to share and of course he provided lots of information about the history of Knysna.
He is a very entertaining, caring and knowledgable host and I recommend his boat tours to everyone who is interested in learning more about Knysna on an individual and personal trip.
Even though it was holiday season and he hadn't gotten a day off for quite a while, he took his time with us and extended the 1.5hr trip to over 2 hours...
Thanks a lot, Karl, it was beautiful!

“Interesting. Intimate. Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Karl was an excellent guide of the Knysna lagoon and sea. He is knowledgeable about the history and surroundings and has a focus on safety unlike some of the other operators in the area. We watched the sunset from the boat overlooking the picturesque Heads, a perfect end to our time here. An experience not to be missed. Thanks!!

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

My hubby and I had the opportunity of enjoying a boat trip on the Knysna Lagoon and ocean with the very competent captain Karl!! What amazing views of Knysna, the Knysna Heads and all the spectacular surroundings!! But Karl also goes the extra mile to ensure client satisfaction and shares with his clients a very insightful brief history of how Knysna came to be the great town it is today!! The sunset cruise we enjoyed with Southern Cape Ocean Experience was truly unforgettable with memories my hubby and I will cherish forever!!

We enjoyed a very nice boat trip over the lagoon and later over the Indian Ocean with the friendly and skilled driver Karl. Karl greeted us and after that he sailed over the lagoon and explained a lot of the surrounding.I highly recommend this lagoon and ocean outing and will share it with visitors for years to come!
Karl made it super fun for us!
