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 safe in our kayaks. We leave from Simon’s Town Waterfront and paddle past the civilian and Naval Harbor and out to Boulder’s Beach. After visiting the penguins we stop on a lovely semi-private beach for refreshments, swimming and snorkeling (we provide the snorkels and bottled drinking water). Our double kayaks are very stable and perfect for those with no paddling experience. By far our most popular trip. An ideal travel adventure.
