Kayak Trip Instructions


You must WhatsApp or text message +27 65 707 4444 an hour or two before your scheduled trip time to check the weather because if the conditions are windy the trip may be postponed. Cloud and rain is not an issue, just wind.

Note that it could for example be foggy where you are and perfectly fine in Simon’s Town and, conversely, perfectly calm there but very windy here.


The guided 2 hour long trip leaves from Simon's Town Waterfront jetty on Wharf Street and there is a car park right there. Arrive 15 minutes before departure time.

Local landmarks are Berthas Restaurant or Salty Sea Dog or the Post Office.


If you are driving in from Cape Town area you should use the Ou Kaapse Weg route rather than Muizenberg/Kalk Bay - it can be about 20 minutes quicker. Your GPS may tell you to go via Muizenberg so you should ignore it and follow these instructions.

See our Directions Page (which also has train information). 

It's worth checking the traffic on Google Maps/Waze etc.

Please plan to arrive around 15 minutes prior to your scheduled trip time. 


If you have a driver or taxi bringing you, insist they deliver you to this Google Map pin: https://goo.gl/maps/9Y3TtJe2LHK2 


Please plan to arrive around 15 minutes prior to your scheduled trip time. It's a 50-60 minutes drive from Cape Town.



Wear swimming trunks or short or even long pants and shirt. Quick-Dry clothing is best, cotton is discouraged. You will get wet from the waist down and your upper body may get damp. If it's chilly bring a windbreaker as well. Remember to bring a towel and change of clothing.



The guide will usually have a camera with them to take pictures of you which are posted on FaceBook but you are welcome to bring your own if it's a small one or cellphone. At your own risk of course so a tupperware or ziplock bag is also a good idea. 

We try to have stock of waterproof cellphone pouches for you to buy if you prefer. They cost R200 each, cash only please.


Please read our FAQ here which should answer all your questions, but if not please whatsapp or email us.
