Thank you Carl for the fun trip through the Knysna Lagoon!! Besides offering wonderful views of the area, Carl answers any question you have - or not have ;-) - about the history of Knysna and its people, wildlife, the Heads etc. We were lucky enough to have a very calm sea so we could take a ride through the Heads to the open sea!

I strongly recommend this trip for a stay in the Knysna area followed by dinner on Thesen Island.

Hubby and I decided that we needed to go on a cruise while in Knysna. After some research we decided that the Sea Safari from Ocean Experience would be perfect. I called Karl and booked the trip, and we were incredibly impressed. Karl is extremely safety conscious and as someone who works in a high risk environment, I was exceptionally appreciative of this. He is also a wealth of knowledge and answered every one of our questions (and questions from the other group of people) easily. We were fortunate to see a humpback whale - who seemed to enjoy our company by staying close for a long while. A school of Dolphins frolicked playfully around the boat, and a Hammerhead shark slinked by ominously close to the shore. The view of the heads and Buffalo Bay were beyond stunning.
Karl keeps a tight ship - the boat was clean and well kept. He is an experienced skipper and was extremely thoughtful - enquiring about our well-being several times during the trip. The entire experience was also very well priced as compared to other cruises in the area. My only regret - me not having brought a camera along that was good enough to capture this memorable ocean experience. We loved this trip and will gladly do it again the next time we are in Knysna.

Pros: Skipper was very experienced, he expertly took us smoothly out to sea (not a drop of water in the boat!) and knew where to look for animals in the water. Very big on safety, boat was not huge but very well-maintained. Small groups only so it was a personal experience.

Cons: Only accepts cash.

This is a family-run operation - Carl is the skipper and owner. Overall, we had a good time on the sea safari and would recommend to others.
