Overview

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 day at 9.30Am 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.

We were not lucky with the weather (grey, rainy and windy) but they took us on a sportive trip to a 1910 shipwreck (since it was going to be too dangerous to get to the penguins). Despite the grim weather we had a great time,...More

This is not the best area to see dolphins, try Kaskazi on the Cape Town side for that. We are the best area for penguins and seals.
