There are three things you simply must do when visiting the heart of the Garden Route, Knysna – traverse our diverse Estuary, pass through the rugged Knysna Heads and explore our incredible and unique coastline with Ocean Odyssey Whale and Dolphin Watching & Springtide Charters Knysna.

As the only permitted whale and dolphin operator in Knysna, on a coastline that boasts a year-round abundance of marine life there is so much to see and experience. As winter approaches in we prepare for the arrival of our migratory giants Humpback and Southern Right whales, who celebrate their journey and perform incredible acrobatics before your eyes. There is no better way or place to see them, onboard our comfortable Blue flag motor vessels which depart from Thesen Island.

For the romantics and sailing enthusiasts, cruise along South Africa’s most diverse estuary on our 50ft monohull sailing yacht and witness one of the magnificent sunset scenes, paired with a glass of chilled bubbly, snacks, and great company as the yacht sails along the Garden Routes most picturesque coastline.

There is no doubt that Knysna is the perfect place for loading up on vitamin SEA!
