This post shows photos from our entrance into The Heads at Knysna. From the dramatic photos below, you’ll see why this is such an attraction. You can also see why boaters are very cautious about entering this dangerous looking place. As mentioned before, there is a webcam view from a close-by restaurant which shows the conditions at the entrance. This is very helpful for boats arriving to see whether the waves are breaking over the entrance. The photo here shows what the entrance looked like a few minutes before we went through. In the slideshow below, you will see photos as we approached and went through the entrance – taken by Karen (I was busy driving the boat).

As mentioned we met up with David and Marian of s/v Kilkea, and went ashore a few minutes later to the charming waterfront area behind the Knysna Yacht Club. There we had a nice lunch and later had a surprise encounter with some other yachties (see previous post). That night we went to the yacht club and had a nice BBQ (they call it Braii) potluck and ate in the club dining hall.

The next day, we piled into a taxi with the crew of Kilkea and went to visit The Heads as tourists. We ate lunch at the East Heads Cafe where the webcam is located. After an excellent lunch, we walked along the shore and took lots of dramatic photos. I also took two 360 panoramas which I’ll share properly later. But, here’s a photo to whet your appetite of the spectacular views we had.

And here is the photo album to give you a full taste of The Heads at Knysna:
