“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This was a great trip. The weather was nice and sunny and although there were some waves, Karl was very careful and made sure that no one could possibly get hurt. Even just the boat trip was a thrill in itself, including lifevests. At one point we also managed to find one whale, which unfortunately didn't want to do much with us but Karl kept chasing it very carefully and was a very good guide. He was an overall great guy, too. He was very nice to talk to and I felt really good about everything during the trip. The only downside was that we only saw one whale and from quite far away, but that's just luck! I would recommend this trip to everyone :D

“The Other Side of Knysna Heads”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

What an experience! A beautiful boat trip, ably skippered by Karl, where we were fortunate to see dolphin and whales. The setting was magnificent, with Karl providing witty commentary of all the goings on and all the land marks. Karl's ability to keep us informed but at the same time keeping his eye on the ocean to ensure all was in order was something to behold. It really is a must do, and to see the Knysna Heads from the other side is something quite special.

“Incredible outing”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

What a fantastic trip. The weather played its part and we were able to enjoy a wonderful boat trip through the heads and out into the sea on Southern Cape Ocean Experience. As if that wasn't enough Karl managed to locate dolphins and whales for us to view - what a treat. Thank you Karl your insights were very interesting.

“Beautiful Knysna”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

My wife and I took our five year old twins to visit Knysna . The best experience was doing a boat trip with Karl Movius on Southern Cape Ocean Experience. Whilst there are a number of operators leaving Thesesn Island , we chose Karl a number of times as he puts safety first , is knowledgeable and the experience is thoroughly enjoyable. Phone him if he is not there , his knowledge on the area and the trip is well worth it .

“What a tour !!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

This really was a fantastic tour for myself & girlfriend. I would really pay double for what we got out of it. Karl the skipper of Ocean Exprience was very professional at all times & friendly. Naturally he had a good way of taking us through an adventure of the Knysna lagoon and was very knowledgable and interesting. He took time with us and treated everyone on board as people. The cruise itself was exciting. We enjoyed the lagoon cruise so much , we then did the ocean cruise which was fantastic and took my breathe away. This really is something that must be done when visting Knysna to get yourself in tocuh with the place. Thank you Karl...Ryan & Nicole
