“Great Spot for Birdwatching”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

If birdwatching is an important hobby for you, this spot can provide several bird species of shorebirds or marsh birds that you might not see otherwise. Although there are many locations to see things like the Sacred Ibid, this is a very good place to find them.

“A catamaran ride across the lagoon”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Featherbed Sea Tours [or something like that, I think] provided us with a wonderful sail from the harbour in Knysna to the lagoon entrance. The Indian Ocean was too rough to allow us to exit the lagoon, but as we got closer, the swell increased, and we were glad not to leave the safety of the lagoon. The views of the surrounding areas and hills with their fantastic houses was a real experience. The captain and crew were excellent and very knowledgeable, providing us with a commentary about what we could see. Drinks could be purchased on board.

“Superb”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Knysna Lagoon is a beautiful and relaxing place. Take out some time to walk around here. The harbour compliments the overall beauty. Believe it or not, the place is very cal and surreal.
