Ever stood on the edge of the Sea Point Promenade and gazed out towards the vast ocean, wondering what it would be like to just sail away into the horizon? Well, you can do exactly that… with these two-hour guided kayaking tours of the Atlantic Seaboard coastline.
The tours depart from Three Anchor Bay beach under the Sea Point Promenade (near the Putt-Putt course), and with the aid of knowledgeable and experienced guides, venture along the coastline towards the V&A Waterfront (or Clifton Beach) – depending on weather conditions and the preferences of the participants.
Just a short distance from Cape Town’s most famous dog-walking strip, a whole other universe exists. African penguins, Cape fur seals, sunfish (aka mola mola), Bryde’s whales, humpback and southern right whales, as well Heaviside’s dolphins are known to swim so close to the coastline, you may not even need a kayak to see them. But it is pretty awesome to have them swim alongside or under your kayak as you paddle along! Thriving kelp forests are home to a world you just have to discover.
So if you’re looking to connect with nature, and see what the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range and Lion’s Head look like from a kayak way out in the ocean, these guided tours are not to be missed.
