We took the lunch time cruise. The cruise is a slow drive towards the Knysna Heads. The service for drinks and food was extremely slow and the food was not that great. It is a nice relaxing trip.

There is not much of a difference in the viewing during low and high tide. The trip goes out on the lagoon. So don’t worry about tides too much
