About The Rockhopper Fund

The Rockhopper Fund believes in the power of Influence. We believe that small groups of passionate locals can achieve more than a bloated organisation or government. Your booking enables researchers like Justin to put acoustic and satellite tags in sharks & big fish - providing the facts and resources required to solve marine and coastal conservation challenges since 2009.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to The Rockhopper Fund. .

If you want to see the touristy spots but also some small and untouristy spots then this is for YOU! Breathtaking views will be part of the package, but the day's adventure changes based on recent sightings and the day's conditions - getting us closer to nature. We'll start the day with a delicious coffee and croissant (not included but well priced) before heading along the remarkable Chapman's…

Where you'll be

Cape Town’s coasts are ripe for exploration. Paying close attention to local conditions and unique opportunities, we will wander off the path to visit secret spots along the way. We’ll take in the classic 'must-see' panoramas while capturing the essence of the famous Cape of Good Hope. All of this, from scenery to starfish, is enhanced by the extensive knowledge of Justin.
