Why have a mobile sea kayak operation you may ask? Well, after over 20 years of Sea Kayaking around the Cape Peninsula, we would hate to limit ourselves to only one route! Being mobile also means that we can paddle in the best conditions on the day. Our novice kayak trips are suited to all skill levels, and we have purchased locally designed and manufactured double sit on top kayaks from Vagabond Kayaks. These are super stable, comfortable and fast kayaks with ample room for storage. We have developed three basic routes suitable for all skill levels. We also have some more adventurous options for intermediate paddlers. We use imported sit inside kayaks for these trips.
We start from the calm waters of Long Beach, Simons Town and follow a route through the yacht basin and along the coast. Along the way, we’ll explore kelp forest, sea bird roosting sites and the penguin colony at Seaforth. Depending on conditions, we’ll paddle past Boulders beach and into Windmill before returning. Whales, seals are also often seen. The trip is around 2 hours from start to finish so that you can carry on exploring the rest of the peninsula. It is best done in the early morning.
