Customer Reviews

This was an incredible experience! We loved every second. - Page Lotze

I planned this activity for my dad and I on Father's Day. We had an amazing time, despite the cold weather. Our guide kept us entertained and shared some very interesting stories that we didn't even know (as Capetonian's). It was one of the most memorable experiences we've had and we would love to come beck with the rest of our family. - Matthew Harris

Layton and the team were so nice and accommodating. We were late but they still managed to accommodate us. This was such a fun and interesting activity (make sure to set your watches to workout ?). It was a communication test between me and my bestie but Layton was there to guide us throughout a be make sure we don't go in the wrong direction and he gave us lots of history and information about the area. He also gave us tips on where to go for good fish and chips in Cape Town. I will definitely be back and recommend this to anyone who is going to Cape Town - Semaka

Being out on the vast open ocean was a scary thought for me at first, but the guide was so calm, friendly and knowledgeable he made us feel safe throughout our trip. We spotted dolphins so close we could almost touch them. Going through the 'green room' was a trip in trip especially when a friendly seal appeared right next to us. When we started our trip I thought how on earth am I going to kayak that far but it ended up feeling ...soos nog ? A definite must guys. That's just my experience, go experience it for yourself - Leanne Hendricks

Absolutely loved my first kayak experience. The entire team was so welcoming from the first interaction to the last. Our guide, Leighton, was fantastic. His energy was contagious and we could tell that he loves what he does. We didn't want the trip to end! Thank you. We will be back. - Tarryn Kihler
