Kayak Cape Town has created an excursion that includes the very best features of paddling off the peninsula; a trip in an area that locals love and best of all, an environment that penguins and whales choose to be in too! We launch at the jetty near the naval and civilian harbours of the picturesque village of SimonsTown and head along the stunningly beautiful coast of False Bay. Paddling in and around giant granite boulders that provide some protection from the open ocean we will make our way towards the penguin colony at Boulders, perhaps even pulling up onto a sandy white beach for a swim.
The delightful penguins are a huge drawcard of this trip, but you are also likely to spot other marine creatures like seals and dolphins and, in winter, whales.
Kayaking off Simons Town is possible throughout the year and every season has its own appeal. Kayak Cape Town is run by serious kayakers who know this coastline like an old friend. Stable double kayaks are used, and all gear provided. Children as young as 8 can join in the fun of exploring this coastal gem.
