The trip was good and very informative with the skipper "Big Boy" throwing in some funny quips while giving more info on the surrounding area. The return trip is a bit boring though and can feel long, but you can take drinks and snacks on the ferry to pass time (not available for purchase in the Waterfront though).

Short boat ride to the Heads on a packed boat. Was a fine experience but was a bit too crowded to thoroughly enjoy. Tour guide was very funny and informative, which was the best part of the ride. I would probably opt for a smaller boat the next time to get a more intimate experience.

The skipper was great. Very informative and funny. We had a awesome experience and learnt a lot about how the whole area came to be as it is now.

This was an amazing boat trip. We went as a family with two 5year olds. We all enjoyed it very much. Our captain was Big Boy (Peter), very funny and made the trip worth it. He had lots of jokes and made us all feel at ease. Thanx you guys, keep up the good work.

Big boy (not Peter) was a excellent host and captain. We enjoyed his humor. If ever in Knysna- do the trip. Its... More

Best Tour Guide I have come across so far. Lot's of humor and very engaging with the passengers. Was a peaceful and beautiful tour with 'lekker' laughs.

This was one of the most enjoyable boat trips I've had. Big Boy, our tour guide, gave an interesting and comical tour of Knysna Lagoon. We had a great time, Thanks Big Boy.
