Kayak Trip to the Penguins at Boulders Beach
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 winter and early spring there is also a possibility of seeing whales.
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. Groups of 4 or more can arrange a mid morning or afternoon trip by phone, text or email, if the availability schedule does not show one.
