About Snorkelling With Seahorses

Take a trip to Knysna and go snorkelling with the very charming Knysna seahorses. These brownish creatures are irresistibly cute and a must visit while in the area.

Knysna is known for a few things - oysters, gorgeous homes, and the massive lagoon. This lagoon is a hotspot for water sports like waterskiing, kitesurfing, hydrofoiling, kayaking and stand-up paddling; thanks to the calm, shallow waters. However, it is also the home of a number of fantastic marine species; not least of all, the endemic Knysna seahorse.

Knysna Dive Charters is based in Knysna itself, and takes visitors on a memorable excursion to see, not only the charming Knysna seahorse, but also the fish and vegetation just under the surface of this scenic lagoon. But, thanks to the shallow waters of the lagoon, this is a snorkelling adventure (as opposed to a SCUBA one, which would require certification) that is available to the whole family. Glide through the cool to temperate waters while you admire the greenery of the Indian Ocean and search the crevices for the little seahorses.

This is an endangered species that is able to change colour, depending on their surroundings. This makes them a challenge to spot, but they are well worth the effort. Fortunately, the guides know their favourite hiding places and are well-equipped to point these well-camouflaged marine residents out to you.

After your underwater adventure in the lagoon, head back to the harbour town for cocktails, a hot coffee, or a delicious meal. Alternatively, bring along a fishing rod and try your hand at catching cob, Garrick or mullet.

Knysna is a beautiful little town along the Garden Route, and the perfect stopover for travellers that want to see the beauty of South Africa. It is less than 30 minutes from Plettenberg Bay, six hours from Cape Town, and 2.5 hours from Port Elizabeth.
