Penguin Sea Kayak TripBook Now
Paddle the warm waters of False Bay and we’ll show you some wonderful things on our paddling visit to the penguins at Boulders Beach. No experience is required and any able bodied person can do it. We paddle every day of the year, weather permitting – summer and winter. The winter months are often wonderful for paddling because they have more calm windless days than summer and on those days it is absolutely beautiful. Plus there is always a chance of seeing whales.
One of the most unique places in the world – a penguin colony in suburban Cape Town! And the best way to see it is from the water. We meet at the town jetty in Simon’s Town for a short introduction to paddling technique and a safety briefing. We then paddle out past the civilian and Naval Harbour where you get a bonus close up view of our biggest naval vessels and out to Boulder’s Beach to see the penguins. On the way we will normally encounter a number of Cape Fur seals. If the time and tide is right we may stop on a beach for a swimming break, or else we swim from the kayaks and get a close up look at penguins on the rocks nearby. Our double kayaks are very stable and perfect for those with no paddling experience and children 10 and up. This is a trip every able bodied individual can and should do.
During the whale season in winter and spring there is also a possibility of seeing these remarkable animals.
The daily scheduled trip leaves at 8.30am in the summer season (9.00am winter season) when it is usually less windy and penguin sightings are better. In peak summer season we also have an 11am trip, and sometimes an afternoon trip.
