Sunset Cruise


Activity Description

There is no better way to end off the day – enjoying wine and oysters on a relaxing boat cruise and taking in the magnificence of Knysna as our African sun starts to set over the lagoon. Indulge your inner romantic and join us onboard our “Oyster Boat” as we head off slowly towards the impressive Knysna Heads, and take in the splendor of the tranquil lagoon as the sun sets on another perfect day in Africa. Relax while you enjoy a glass of wine with a few fresh local oysters. The cruise is slow and leisurely, ultimately relaxing and one can’t help but just sit back, and take it all in! The sunset cruise is a fully guided cruise and is inclusive of complimentary white wine and oysters for tasting.

Cruises depart daily from our Activity Desk at Sirocco Restaurant, Thesen Island. Please remember your camera, sunblock, sunhat and wind breaker (just in case!)

Customer Reviews

We really enjoyed the cruise. - Johannes Afrika

The boat cruise was great! Thank you - Sipho maduna

It didn't stop raining on the day we were due to have our Wine & Oysters Sunset Cruise so it was cancelled. We were offered a time for the next morning, which was gratefully accepted as we were moving on that day. They even asked if we still wanted the Wine & Oysters, but we declined (too early to start drinking!). The morning cruise was superb. The owner (whose name I can't remember - sorry) made it very interesting with information about the lagoon, residents on it's shores, wildlife, and general local knowledge. All in all, money and time well spent. Would highly recommend. - Anita Malkin

Es war eine sehr kurzweilige, interessante und informative Bootsfshrt. Unser Skipper hat uns viel uber die Bucht erzahlt. Ausserdem gab es sehr leckere Austern und leckeren Wein. Den Ausflug kann ich weiter empfehlen. Liebe Grusse, Peter - Peter Mentges

Fresh oysters and chilled wine on a boat what a wonderful experience. Informative, unique and a good laugh. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Knysna. We really enjoyed it! - Shali
