Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Simons Town, in Cape Town

The African Penguin colony that inhabits the beaches and unique rock formations of the Western Cape coastline continues to lure tourists from all over the world to learn more about these marine birds and their delightful antics.

Kayaking these waters is a fantastic way to see the penguins (as well as many other marine species) without imposing on their territory or disturbing them from their natural behaviour. This means getting up close to them at a comfortable pace, and really experiencing the intricacies of their behaviour.

Paddling with the experienced guide in the secure, stable kayaks enables visitors to learn about the local ecology, tourist attractions and wildlife while enjoying the fresh sea air and the magnificent views of the land. To see the penguins, the trip leaves from the Simons Town Jetty and takes visitors past the Naval Harbour (which is, in itself, an impressive sight). Then, paddlers will go on to Boulders Beach, where the local colony of penguins can be seen in abundance.

Along the way, paddlers are sure to spot the Cape Fur Seal playing in the water or warming up in the sun.

Visitors are encouraged to take a dip in the waters, and snorkelling masks are provided in the summertime. Of course, time and weather conditions do influence the possibility of swimming and diving.

The double kayaks are stable, and paddlers require no previous experience.
