What you'll do

Cape Town's natural beauty is world-renowned, however, few have experienced its sights and sounds from the fresh blue water of the Atlantic Ocean.

Leaving our base at the calm waters of the V&A Waterfront, you will paddle into the fresh movement of the ocean where you will encounter our active marine life and possibly catch a glimpse of some local dolphins, whales, seals, penguins and sunfish! You will also witness unique views of Lion's Head, Signal Hill and our local shipwreck.

The tour will then be ended off with a breathtakingly photogenic view of Cape Town's treasure, Table Mountain.

No previous experience needed.

Set your senses free on our 2 hour Sea Kayak Tour, your outlook of Cape Town will be positively changed forever!
Other things to note
I advise you to wear something to paddle in that's comfortable when wet, as well as a change of dry clothes, a towel, sunscreen, water and a hat. Bring a windbreaker if you have one available.

Please kindly take note, kayak capacity 100kg max weight per person.

Amazing and magical experience! Saw a huge sunfish swimming underneath us as well as a big pod of dolphins and a seal. 100/10 would recommend!

Was a fun activity. But wasn’t as exciting in terms of things to see. The waves were rough so if you are prone to sea sickness I wouldn’t recommend it

Great experience kayaking in Cape Town! We did not see any dolphins but the scenery and just being on the water was awesome. Shanty was a great kayak guide and we had good conversation with him. Definitely recommend this tour!
