“Changing Tides of Knysna”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Living in Knysna, one never gets tired of this beautiful Lagoon and all it has to offer the people who visit and the recreation that takes place on it.
From water-skiing, canoeing, fishing, swimming and boating to just meandering up the River by house boat, speed boat or canoe to watch the sunset or having drinks at Peroni Beach Bar, this is one place you never tire of with its changing tides and quaint bays and views of the Heads.

“Ok”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Nice tourist spot. Stay at Protea on the Quays.
Knysna is not too big so can't get lost.
Can see why it's popular with Tourists and locals

Reviewed April 7, 2013

Famous! If you have a boat, even better! There are 3 slipways where you can launch for free. There are numerous ferry rides. There is a lovely waterfront shopping center with great restaurants with lovely views of the lagoon and harbour. Spend a few hours (and rands!) in this area! Quite enjoyable!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Drive onto Leisure Island and take a quick stroll in the Steenbok Nature Reserve. A lovely quiet place, with great views and some good bird watching if you are interested.

“Tranquil lagoon experience”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We utilised the services of the Featherbed's paddlecruiser to tour the lagoon up to the magnificent Knysna Heads. The weather was perfect and the experience was beautiful and well worth it. It is extremely easy to book and the staff is friendly and helpful. We definately recommend it.
