We stayed only one day in Knysna and it was the best activity we could have Chosen.
We don't have the Feeling that we missed something of the beautiful nature! it was pretty awesome to see dolphins and whales, as well.
You get a lot of Information of everything you see, the lagoon, the heads, a bit of the knysna coast, the whales, the dolphins and the seals.
The chance to see whales and dolphins as well is pretty hight because there is a spotter, who is looking for foodprints.
THANKS A LOT FOR THE FANTASTIC TOUR! Rabea & Lisa

We loved our Whale Watching experience, it was a nice sunny day and the trip out of through the heads on it's own was a pretty thrilling experience! Our skipper was very professional and handled the boat really well. He was also very knowledgeable about the whales and gave us a great deal of information. He struggled to find the whales but made use of other boats and spotters from the shore and we came across quite a few at close quarters. They are such gentle giants and even though they did not put on a show for us, it was just fantastic to be out there with them.
The trip back was lovely, it is great seeing Knysna and The Heads from the Ocean. All in all a really great experience!

The owner comes with a sincere and genuine passion for what he does.Both him and his assistant were steeped in knowledge about the ocean, whales, dolphins and birds. Safety was well attended to. We were taken from whale pod to pod. Directions to whales were provided by spotters on the hill tops. They answered all questions and more. Great value for money. The only disappointment was that it had too end. I would have liked it to continue all day!!!

The guide was experienced, friendly, and willing to show us more! Highly recommended! We saw many whales for more 1-2 hours and was able to follow them without disturbing them. A female whale was inquisitive and came to our boat several times, and she was also happened to be followed by 3-4 male whales. After all, it was unforgettable experience. Good job! Ocean Odyssey!

A great day! We have seen incredible Whales, stormy weather and super craftmanshift on the boat. We were able to get close to 8 whales in action. Special thanks to the skipper and co.
