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…
Tracy Fincham, who runs Kaskazi Kayaks and Adventures, offers two-hour guided 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. Penguins, seals – and even whales and dolphins – are known to swim in these bays and backwaters, while beneath your canoe, thriving kelp forests are home to a wide array of fish and shellfish.
So if you’re looking to connect with nature, and see what Lion’s Head looks like from a kayak way out in the ocean, a guided tour with Kaskazi Kayaks and Adventures is not to be missed.
In addition to their guided adventures, Kaskazi also offers:
- Kayak Training: A four-hour intro course aimed at people who have already been on a kayak adventure, and want to explore the sport further.
- Kayak Store: A range of kayaks and kayaking equipment available for purchase. Tracy runs the kayak shop, while her husband, Art, manufactures world class Kaskazi kayaks, handmade in Cape Town.
