Our kayaks are designed for maximum stability in all conditions. Age is no barrier - anyone with full mobility from 10 upwards can do it.

Good guys and a great couple of hours in the boats. Easy to use kayaks that are nice and stable and Jeff our guide even rescued my glasses from the seabed after I dropped them. Really enjoyable and good value.

Kayak Cape Town arranges a good kayaking trip out of Simon's Town to see the penguins. It is nice to be on the water and approach the penguins this way. The tour operators prepare everything - all you need to do it paddle!

My husband and daughter really enjoyed their paddle to see the penguins and came back full of enthusiasm Kayak Cape Town and what it has to offer. It was very reasonably priced and the kayaks are modern and very stable.
