Knysna: Close Encounter Whale Watching Tour by Boat

1. Knysna: Close Encounter Whale Watching Tour by Boat

Come get up close and personal with the gentle giants of the ocean on this 2-hour whale watching tour! Your trip begins as your captain navigates you through the Knysna Estuary and then you'll head out towards the vast and beautiful Indian Ocean. Every year, both the southern right and humpback whales leave their icy feeding grounds off Antarctica and migrate to mate and calve in the warmer waters of the Southern African coastline - this makes Knysna one of the best whale-watching destinations in the country. The tour will be narrated by an experienced skipper and guide who will share with you fascinating information about the lives of these whales. Your adventure will also be assisted by an experienced whale spotter who is in radio contact with all skippers, so you can be directed to any sightings. Keep your eyes peeled for other marine life as well - you may even spot a dolphin or a penguin or two!

Knysna Heads and Estuary Adventure

2. Knysna Heads and Estuary Adventure

This 45-minute adventure shows you the Knysna region's legendary and diverse estuary and all that it has to offer the coastal town of Knysna. The estuary has a compelling history, fascinating birdlife and is inhabited by 43% of South Africa's plant and animal life. View the rugged and iconic Knysna Heads, a unique sandstone formation, and the magnificent ancient caves nestled amongst the coves of this beautiful coastline. Depending on the tide, you may be able to see the famous Pacquita shipwreck found at the mouth of the Knysna Heads. An experienced skipper will also share with you information and stories about the area and how these natural formations came to be.  This trip is ideal for families and large groups. The tour does not venture out into the ocean, but rather shows you all that the Knysna Estuary has to offer - this is certainly the best place to witness the beauty of the flora and fauna of the region!
