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.

Hello, Are sharks a threat kayaking from Simon's Town to Boulder's Beach?
