About Cape Kayak Adventures
Connect with nature and experience Cape Town from a different perspective by joining us for a leisurely, fun and scenic paddle in the heart of Sea Point, set against the spectacular backdrop of Table Mountain and the Stadium! All trips are guided, and we are conservative about the conditions we kayak in. The trips are gentle in pace and no previous kayaking experience is necessary. The focus is on fun, enjoying the serene setting, and hopefully spotting some wildlife. We are often fortunate to see a variety of wildlife on our trips including seals, sun fish and even the occasional penguin! There is a chance of seeing dolphins & we are also lucky to see both Southern Right and Humpback whales from time to time, as they migrate along our coastline. We do 3-4 trips trips throughout the day (depending on the season). Morning trips a best for seeing wildlife, while our late afternoon trip offers the prospect of spectacular sunset views towards Clifton. Trips are approximately 2 hours long.

Sunset Session

The view of Signal Hill, Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles is unforgettable. Uninterrupted views of our spectacular mountain range and the sea breeze will leave you feeling rejuvenated and hungry to taste more of what the Mother City has to offer.

The trip to Granger Bay takes us past the Green Point Lighthouse, the wrecks of the Seafarer and RMS Athens and to one of the favourite hangouts for our endemic Haviside’s dolphins. They are common companions to our trips – particularly on summer mornings.

Locals should plan to experience this too! We loved our kayaking morning and were very lucky to be surrounded by dolphins, swimming and jumping too. Inquisitive penguins swam past us too (quite unusual according to the guide) and went on their fishing way. We briefly spotted a sunfish before he shyly dropped down into the ocean floor. The guides are friendly and helpful but also allow you to paddle in peace and enjoy the experience. My one tip would be to watch the weather forecast and try choose your day if possible. Wind-free days with gorgeous mountain views makes for an extremely pleasant adventure.

We went out as a family group of 5 on the 07:30 sunrise trip. The conditions could not have been better and we were comprehensively briefed before departure from the slipway at Three Anchor Bay. Altogether we made up a group of about 18 people and were accompanied by 3 guides on their own kayaks. The routing took us towards the V&A Waterfront where we spotted dolphins, penguins, seals and plenty of colorful jellyfish. The return leg saw the wind pick up a bit, but the group was safely shepherded through the minimal swells back to the departure point. Two hours of good, healthy fun.

I am truly displeased with the service that I received when I went kayaking with Cape Kayak Adventures. If you are going to advertise kayaking for beginners, don’t! My friends and I were beginners and they did not treat us properly. Guides are supposed to help you and not get irritated and annoyed. Our kayak was going in the wrong direction and went into the rocks and they kept telling us to reverse the Kayak but how are we meant to do that if we don’t know how to kayak. In the beginning before we went out on the water, the guide showed us what to do in two minutes. Then our left padel wasn’t working and the boat was going in the wrong direction to the group. The guide came to us, connected a rope with our boat to his. We thought we were going to the group but no, we went back to the beach front, he did not even tell us what is happening. Why couldn’t he just keep his boat connected to ours and then go to the rest of the group. It was so unfortunate and he blamed it on the bad weather. But how can it be bad weather when there are other people out there. As we returned to shore there was another boat leaving out as their foot padel also wasn’t working so they got a new boat and went out again. How unfair. Plus they got to see dolphins, according to their Instagram story that day. I’m very upset by the way they treated us. I’ve tried paragliding, surfing, scuba diving and zip lining and all the guides and instructors were super friendly and helped a lot for beginners, but these people are not like that at all! They care more about their boat more than you. At least they refunded us so we didn’t waste our money!

Dear Nabeela, it sounds like you had a rough day on the Atlantic Ocean, which can happen so quickly as the weather changes. It sounds like your Guide did the best thing to get you safely to shore , while having to get back to the group and take care of the other Guests, who made it safely out the bay. Humble apologies if the Guides appeared rude, they have to make quick decisions based on the weather and your capabilities. The Guides get paid to ensure the safety of the entire group, so if they made the call to take you back to shore , they do not get paid for your presence, so I can assure you , they did if for your safety, not to be rude. The Guides know the ocean conditions as well as their kayak limits, and towing you to the rest of the group could have hindered their job to look after everyone. We would love you to give kayaking and our Guides another try, on a calm and peaceful ocean! Please email me directly (trace@kayak.co.za) and I will be very happy to take you when the conditions are perfect :)
