Established a decade ago, Ocean Odyssey offers a range of eco-based boating activities to suit holiday makers and nature enthusiasts alike. They are centrally located at Thesen Harbour Town in Knysna which is often referred to as the “Jewel of the Garden Route”. The Knysna Estuary is also considered the richest in terms of estuarine biodiversity in all of South Africa.  Their whale watching and marine eco-tours showcase this unique area including the spectacular life found above and beneath its surface.

Ocean stewardship and the preservation of our oceans is proven in their commitment to marine research. Ocean Odyssey supports many research projects in conjunction with NMMU as well as offering educational based tours to students and volunteer groups.

The engines on all their vessels have been retrofitted with the latest fuel efficient low emission, low smoke and low sound emitting engines.
