This is the view you have from the Featherbed Reserve, on the right Knysna head, of the left Knysna head and the dangerous entrance of the lagoon.

Tour boats go out to the end of the channel to show the ocean breakwater and then back through the calm bay.
This is where the Indian Ocean runs into the bay which is protected by the heads. The heads are big cliff formations on either side of a channel that becomes a breakwater.
