Our first port of call will be in Simonstown where you will meet your sea kayaking guide for a safety briefing and gear up for a few hours’ easy paddling in twin kayaks along the False Bay coast. Pass the African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach and view them from the ocean as they swim around the quaint cove. A sumptuous lunch will replenish your energy before we explore the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park, home to fabulous birds and very special fauna, such as Cape mountain zebra, bontebok and the charismatic Cape baboon. Climb (or ride the world’s first environmentally friendly funicular) to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay. We then head home along the dramatic Atlantic seaboard and navigate the 114 curves of 600m high Chapman’s Peak Drive passing the picturesque fishing hamlet of Hout Bay, Llandudno and Bakoven (with their ghostly shipwrecks),the towering Twelve Apostles, and on through Camps Bay and Bantry Bay.
NB. Our sea kayaks safe and comfortable and require almost no balance or skill.
