Sea Kayaking Cape Town

A unique and beautiful way to experience to cape coastlines. Amazing!


One of the most unique places in the world – a penguin colony in suburban Cape Town! And the best way to see it is from the water safe in our kayaks. We leave from Simon’s Town Waterfront and paddle past the civilian and Naval Harbor and out to Boulder’s Beach. After visiting the penguins we stop on a lovely semi-private beach for refreshments, swimming and snorkeling (we provide the snorkels and bottled drinking water). Our double kayaks are very stable and perfect for sea kayaking and for those with no paddling experience. By far our most popular trip. An ideal travel adventure.

  • You can go barefoot but sandals are a good idea (not flip flops as they tend to come off when you walk in the water).
  • You will get wet so bring a towel and a change of clothes for the afterwards.

→ Our advise to make your sea kayaking experience awesome
The African sun is very strong. Please use a factor 30 sunscreen and wear a hat. You should drink at least 1 liter of water per day to avoid dehydration.
