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.

Our kayaks are designed for maximum stability in all conditions.

Age is no barrier - anyone with full mobility from 10 upwards can do it.

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.

Quite a thick fog rolled in the morning we were due to kayak creating an almost eery feeling on the bay but it provided a different experience for us. The guides are wonderful & have a dry, fun sense of humour. They are very informative. The Penguins don't disappoint & you get a pretty vantage of boulders beach from the... More

An easy paddle at a comfortable pace, with two knowledgeable and humorous guides. We were blessed to paddle around the big frigates coming into the harbour before setting out towards Boulders. The groups of hunting penguins were the cutest things. We stopped at a beach and had penguins waddling around us too - great photo moments. This experience is well... More

My Girlfriend and I enjoyed a very pleasant tour of the gorgeous False Bay. The tour guide was genuinely hilarious, and had us entertained the whole way. The whole experience isn't difficult or tiresome, the pace is altered to suit all abilities. I thoroughly recommend the trip, a fantastic bargain for an amazing 2 hours.

I felt very safe and secure in the Kayaks and the staff were helpful and good fun. Rowing past the Penguins was definitely a highlight. I took my camera with me which was in a protective... More
