Cape Town has arguably got one of the most beautiful coast lines in the world with some of the most unique marine life visiting its shores. Sea kayaking is one of the most eco-friendly and least intrusive ways to explore the coast and meet these animals.

You don't need any previous experience to kayak. Any abled body person can do it. As long as you are fit enough to walk for about an hour, you will be fit enough to do this. The double kayaks are very stable and it is very unlikely that you will fall off. If you do, it is also very easy to get back on. It is not a requirement that you need to be able to swim. You will be wearing a lifejacket the whole time. All of the trips are accompanied by an experienced guide that will give you a short lesson before setting out and that will assist you in any emergency.

We have four great locations to choose from

Hout Bay - Seal sanctuary - R450

Hout Bay is the most iconic bay on the Cape Peninsula with a very lively harbour and stunning views. The very sheltered bay is reasonably protected from most of the bad weather that will make other locations impossible to kayak

The trip starts out in Hout Bay harbour and will take you past the seal sanctuary and out into the bay. From there you will have incredible views of Chapman's Peak, The Sentinel and the mountains surrounding Hout Bay. Marine life you could expect to see are seals, dolphins, whales, penguins, sunfish and a number of seabirds floating and flying by.

Boulders Beach - Simon's Town (Penguin Kayak) - R350

Simons Town is very well known and unique for one thing...having a colony of African Penguins right there in the suburb. One of the best ways to see them is to meet them in their natural environment.

Hop on a sea kayak and head out from the Simon's Town Waterfront. Paddle past the Naval Yard with some of the biggest Naval Ships in the South African Navy and head towards Boulders Beach, famous for its penguins. If the time and tide is right, stop for a quick swim-break on the beach and get close to penguins hanging out on the beach and rocks. On occasion seals, dolphins and whales can also be spotted.

Hermanus - R450

Hermanus is a beautiful town situated about 1.5 hours drive from Cape Town. It is world famous for Southern Right Whales visiting the bay from July to November and coming within meters from shore.

The trip starts from the historical Old Harbour and the direction it will go depends on the wind and waves or lack of it. The whole trip is within a Marine Reserve and by law you are not allowed to get closer than 300m from any whales. The experience is still stunning and the possibility of seeing a big variety of marine life is very good.
