Had a fantastic time on this trip. The wind was a bit blowy which made it hard work getting out of the harbour but the guides were very supportive and did their jobs well, if not a little too effortlessly. Thoroughly enjoyed the wildlife and time spent. Make sure you use plenty of sunscreen!!!

Fun tour- great instructors who were knowledgeable about area.
Didn't get as close to boulder's beach as i thought we would - maybe because of weather??
Saw lots of seals
Great fish and chippy just there for lunch :)

Hi Jolly,

Yes that's why. We normally get much closer and spend more time with the penguins but because it was so choppy and windy we could not. Thanks for reviewing.

The 2.5 hour kayak tour is a perfect way to start the day. They actually do not have a physical shop - you book ahead on-line and meet them at the dock where their kayaks are stored. They also advise that you call in the morning as they might cancel the outings in bad/windy weather. They provide instruction, life jackets, a light jacket to keep your upper body dry, some drinking water, and of course the kayak and paddle. The guides were great - they didn't rush the slower ones and gave great narration along the way. Of course you can walk to the same spots to see the penguins, but seeing them from the water side was a neat treat.

It was a well organized tour with fun guides who love what they are doing. And who wouldn't! Being out there among the seals, penguins and kelp gives you a different perspective of Simonstown.
