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 scheduled a morning kayak, but it was cancelled for wind. We were told a day or two before allowing us to make other plans. We rescheduled, but I was not feeling well and we couldn't make it. However, my emails were answered promptly...More

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

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.
