About Kayak Cape Town
Paddle the warm waters of False Bay and we'll show you some rather amazing things on our kayak trip to visit the penguins at Boulders Beach. No experience is necessary and it's no more taxing than hiking up a hill. Professionally guided Sea Kayak Paddles every morning throughout the year, weather permitting. Our kayaks are designed for maximum stability in all conditions. Age is no barrier - anyone with full mobility from 10 upwards can do it. All trips are led by knowledgable and experienced professional guides.

A really fun, active morning spent kayaking in Simon’s Town. The two hour trip takes you out the calm waters of the harbour, past the enormous navy ships. The water is slightly choppy as you leave the confines of the harbour but it’s still easy to paddle and although I get seasick on boats, I was completely fine on the kayak. It was great to see the penguins swimming alongside us.

Our family joined a larger group for a lovely two hour paddle to see the penguins. None of us are experienced paddlers and while there is a certain level of exertion required we all managed ok (including our 13 year old twins). The weather is important and we’d book in the past and had the activity cancelled. Today, however, the weather was glorious. It’s a great outing and we enjoyed ourselves and learnt a bit about False Bay and it’s feathered inhabitants too; although our guide wasn’t brilliant. Definitely a recommended activity. Do wear sun creams. We took our phones in a ziplock bag and used the Velcro seal pouch on our life jackets so this worked for photos though we also had some taken as part of the trip which we downloaded from the Facebook page. Definitely recommended!

The information they provide online is rather deceiving. Firstly, they do require you to be relatively fit to conquer the waters, so when they state no experience needed, there is an element of deception. Secondly, the weather plays a role in the success of the trip, or whether it happens at all. Also, do not recommend for POC's and this is not body positive either.
