We did an early morning trip, had to wait for other people to arrive so started half an hour late. The swell was really big on the day so kayaking was hard and we both felt very seasick - we didn't get any warning / recognition from the guide about the size of the swell / conditions before we went...

Hi Laura Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not have a great experience. I agree with you on how frustrating it is having to wait for other people, this is extremely selfish but we cannot be held responsible for other peoples actions. It makes problems for us as well. With regards to the swell, we will... More

Went sea kayaking along with my Dad with Dolphin Adventures and they were really good. Kayaks are 2-berth and have a rudder so a lot easier to navigate through the waves and maintain a straight line. The guys provided tops for the cold water as was about 15C or so but fine to kayak in. Overall was about 2hrs and... More

Dolphin Adventures offers wonderful kayak tours for the experienced and inexperienced alike. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about kayaking, the town of Plettenberg Bay, and the local marine life. Great experience all around and I will definitely return if/ when back in the area.

Giovanni took us (16 & 45 yrs) along. He is a very well informed guide. Both related to kayaking and the animals we observe. We felt at ease all the time. Of course one can have luck (or not). We were very lucky. We saw both (humpback) dolphins and (humpback and bryde) whales! It was a real great experience which... More

My family and I would like to thank Giovanni for an awesome ocean kayak experience. We visit the ocean almost annually and this is the first time we have ventured off shore, once we made it beyond the breakers we emerged almost into a different world. This was really a new connection to the wonderful planet we live on. The... More
