Customer Reviews

Incredible service and amazing people that were willing to make our experience unique and epic! - Luke

Suuuuch a good experience, our guides were very capable, knowledgeable and friendly- they made the experience worth it in spite of the rainy weather. Would 100% recommend this to anyone wanting an adventure in Cape Town. - Shamila

We had the best time kayaking in hout bay! We had amazing weather, and even got to see a dolphin. Our guides were wonderful and were enthusiastic. Would definitely recommend!! - Izelma

Throughly enjoyed the tour with both guides! Seeing the dolphins and seals were a great way to end my solo trip in South Africa! Thank you - Natasha

Well, what an experience! Called the office at 08h20, and booking was incredibly easy and efficient! By 10h30 same day, we were all kitted out and ready for the safety briefing. Then the fun started - a relatively calm day which made paddling easier. With regular regrouping, we crossed the bay - to be met by a school of dolphins - amazing! Returning to harbour by going under the jetty was special - the lighting added a new aspect to the paddle. In the harbour we saw many sea birds and plenty seals. I'd highly recommend this to anyone - don't think twice, just do it! - Grant
