I booked a honeymoon sunset cruise for my wife and myself, and wow, was I amazed. I have to be honest, at first I was taken a bit back by the boat, but once we got going everything changed. Our guide (I forgot his name but he's been living in Knysna for 15 years) was absolutely amazing and made this trip so special. We were given such cool info, taken to beautiful spots all around the lagoon and then treated to fresh oysters and white wine.
You are then dropped off at the doorstep of Scirocco's which is an amazing seafood restaurant and our table was perfectly placed with a stunning view.
I could genuinely recommend this experience to anyone interested.
The staff was super friendly and a joy to be around. Keith who took us on the tour was informative as well. Great trip.
