Simon’s Town & Shark Warrior Sea Kayaking Adventure
Depart your city based hotel and travel to the naval hamlet of Simon’s Town which is located on the False Bay coast of the Cape Peninsula. Embark on a sea kayaking adventure (scheduled) with experienced guides in in a twin or single-seater Fluid kayak accompanied by a knowledgeable, fully-trained and experienced sea kayak guide. Kayaks are stable and perfect for those with no experience. Head out to explore the waterways and secret coves hidden among pristine beaches and the natural environments of so many wildlife species that call the area home (By participating in this activity, you are contributing to the conservation of this ecosystem). After a beach landing you will return to Seaforth Beach to change into dry clothing.
Before continuing your journey, visit the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony to witness the African Penguin in its natural environment. After this delightful visit, travel to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve – one of two world-renowned landmarks within the Table Mountain National Park.
Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve
After a lunch stop, travel to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve – one of two world-renowned landmarks within the Table Mountain National Park. The Cape of Good Hope functioned as something of a beacon for early sailors rounding the Cape and is still widely referred to as The Cape by sea farers. Most visitors to Cape Town regards a trip to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point (the tip of the Peninsula) as obligatory. The park is home to an array of natural South African fynbos as well as over 250 different species of birds, buck, baboons and Cape Mountain Zebra. There are numerous paths on which one can set off on foot, and tidal pools on almost isolated beaches. Enjoy the breathtaking views from the Cape Point Lighthouse and venture out to the most South-Western point of the African Continent.
Chapmans Peak Drive
In the late afternoon, drive along one of the worlds most scenic coastal routes via Noordhoek, Chapmans Peak Drive, Hout Bay and the Atlantic Seaboard back to the City. The tour ends with drop off at your hotel.
