Simon's Town Coasteering

Simon’s Town

Activity Description

Coasteering is a brand new adventure activity that allows you to get up close and personal with the ocean! Pioneered in Wales and Scotland, Gravity is proud to be the first to offer this activity in South Africa. What makes it better is that it is right on our doorstep in Simonstown, close to Boulders Beach.

Coasteering bears some resemblance to Canyoning or Kloofing but takes place along a protected coastline rather than in a river course. Each participant is equipped with wetsuit, PFD, helmet, and is accompanied by a guide. The aim is to explore the inter-tidal zone by snorkeling, swimming, and rock jumping. The crystal clear waters and protection from the South Easter make this the perfect location for all skill levels. An added bonus is the abundance of marine life and if you lucky you will come face to face with the African Penguin!

Although there are a number of rock jumps up to 8-10m depending on the tide, none of these are compulsory so you won’t be pressured into something you don’t want to do.

Minimum group size is 4 guests for the activity to go ahead, max is 16 (but we can do more than one group simultaneously), if the amount is not reached, we will contact you to reschedule.

Once you have your dose of Adrenalin, visit the Penguins at Boulders beach, head to Simon’s Town for Lunch, or carry on to Cape Point for a view of False Bay.
Children aged 8 and older are welcome

Customer Reviews

We were a group of 10 people ranging from 12 years to 50 in age and everybody really loved it. The unknown when you jump into the kelp to the assistance from the gravity team and obviously also the cold of the water which is always very invigorating. I recommend this to anybody who wants to see a different side of our beautiful coast. - Victoria
