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 had a lovely trip on a windy day. The paddle is not at all challenging, just long enough to feel like you've made an effort. My whole extended family unanimously rated it the best outing of the holiday. Mornings sessions would probably be better...More

Great adventure. It was challenging as the water was very rough but super fun. Would definitely do it again and recommend to others.
