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.

Had a fantastic time on this trip. The wind was a bit blowy which made it hard work getting out of the harbour but the guides were very supportive and did their jobs well, if not a little too effortlessly. Thoroughly enjoyed the wildlife and...More

Hi Jolly, Yes that's why. We normally get much closer and spend more time with the penguins but because it was so choppy and windy we could not. Thanks for reviewing.

The 2.5 hour kayak tour is a perfect way to start the day. They actually do not have a physical shop - you book ahead on-line and meet them at the dock where their kayaks are stored. They also advise that you call in the...More

A fantastic and beautiful day out in False Bay that included all the sights, sounds and smells of our marine life and we were afforded the opportunity of having a quick dip in the sea too!

Lovely trip with so much to see, including the fab penguins. Friendly, well informed leaders & good equipment. Would thoroughly recommend it - we went as a couple + adult daughter.
