Overview

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 morning 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 an awesome time on the half day kayak tour, even when it started raining half way around and it got soaked!

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...More

This is not the best area to see dolphins, try Kaskazi on the Cape Town side for that. We are the best area for penguins and seals.
