Sea Kayaking to Penguin colony
Not many cities in the world boast their very own penguin colony. Cape Town has one and the best ways to experience it and that is by sea kayak leaving from the Simons Town Waterfront. Paddle out of the harbour past the Naval Base towards Boulders Beach where you will encounter these playful penguins as they surf the waves or bask in the sunshine on the beach. During the correct season you will also have a very good chance of seeing the whales.
The double kayaks are stable and easy to steer making them perfect for those without paddling experience.
Approximately 45 minutes from Cape Town city centre
Sea Kayaking Atlantic Seaboard
The kayaking trip is the ideal location to launch and explore the Table Bay coastline from the sea providing unique and spectacular photo opportunities. The shop is conveniently located at Three Anchor Bay where all kayaks are stored on the beach. From Three Anchor Bay we embark on a 3 – 5 km journey either towards Granger Bay or Bantry Bay. The view of Signal Hill, Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles is unforgettable. Uninterrupted views of our spectacular mountain range and the sea breeze will leave you feeling rejuvenated and hungry to taste more of what the Mother City has to offer. The trip to Granger Bay takes us past the Green Point Lighthouse, the wrecks of the Seafarer and RMS Athens and to one of the favourite hangouts for our endemic Haviside’s dolphins. They are common companions to our trips – particularly on summer mornings.
