WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT'S VERY WINDY?

 


We can kayak, but it may not be possible to get all the way to the penguins due to the strong south-east wind. In these conditions it can be too rough to reach the penguins at Boulders but we can still enjoy a kayak experience in the relatively sheltered area of the Simon's Town harbour and bay. Due to changing conditions we can often not make the final decision on whether to go all the way to Boulders until we are ready to launch.

If you want to get more adventurous we can sneak a little out of the sheltered bay where the sea and wind create an environment where we can play in the waves.

If you don't want to get too adventurous you can stay in the calmer harbour area and still get a terrific kayak experience.

These pictures and video will give you some idea of what it is like if you want to wave play.

It's the same price, and the same time as you are already booked.
If this is not for you then you can postpone your booking to another day or ask for a refund.

 

IT'S NOT DANGEROUS AND NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED
However you do need to paddle quite hard so this is not suggested for kids under 16 or older or smaller adults.
