Customer Reviews

Great experience - Johannes is a great host! - Ross Davies

We had an AWESOME time!!!! As our visitors re-visit many of the things here are one-time experiences for them. Not when it comes to Ocean Odyssey though. I know we will be on an OO charter each time we have a visitor no matter how many times they visit. We will never tire of OO Adventures. Thank you for being local. - Sharon Sprenger

I enjoyed the Marine Eco-tour experience. Unfortunately we were in Knysna when the whale season was over, but we did manage to see some dolphins. We saw the beautiful coastline. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating as we were booked on a day when the weather was not ideal and they were kind enough to change our booking. I can really recommend this. - Jeanne Ferguson

Loved it! Informative and entertaining tour around the Knysna Heads and many dolphins, seals and other marine life to delight your senses! - Anna Kaloudis

Very professionally run, engaging information provided and a realistic expectation set of what marine life may be seen whilst on the water . Coupled with a great shop! Many thanks. - Andrea Moore @ Travellers Choice (20% discount)
