    Walking along Victoria Road from Hout Bay to Camps Bay is well possible. It took me 2 and a half hours combining physical activity with enjoying spectacular views on the Cape shoreline.

    It is a 13 km walk, but mind the elevation difference (some 160m). The section between Llandudno and Oude Kraal I found the most attractive. Motorized traffic on the road is annoying and sometimes there are cyclists passing by at high speed, but overall it is a very pleasant experience.

    Three of us booked a Garden route tour for 4 nights from Capetown.
    From the beginning all the communications were very clear, had no problem at all.
    All places we stayed for overnight were quite nice and we had excellent driver - Sebu.
    Will definitely recommend.

    Wow, what an experience! Went there with my family, Short ride, it was bit wavy and the sea was full of curious seals. Really fun and something completely different. Loved the challenge. Big thanks to Johan and the team.

    My son 28 convinced me to go . Im a 59y/o man who has never been in a wet suit, but off we went. Crew was Great... cant say enough. ok tip # 1... make sure suit in on correctly because the water is CCCCold. You might want to jump right back on the boat but give it a few minutes and you'll adjust. The Captain.is totally into it and will make sure you have a good time, as well as the crew. You will be amazed
    Tip 2 hold on tight as the trip to and back is bouncy at times. maybe keep gloves on for a better grip and hold on to front rope too, I thought it helped.
    Tip 3 Shower when you get back since there is a scent of the seals you carry with you even though at the time you don't notice,
    My son and I had time restraints and at dinner I hoped our companions thought it was the ocean and not us that smelled like sea lions!!
    Fun and amazing.
    should be on everyones bucket list

    These guys are great the boats are fantastic with all latest electronics and a crew to use it to its best effect. I fished 24th April 2016 and once we arrived at the fishing grounds I was fighting fish all day including a 200kg Mako Shark and nice Long Fin Tuna. Thank you for a fun day out that I will remember for a long time
