PENINSULA with SEA KAYAKING – FULL DAY
Tour Code: FA04
Depart the city for Simonstown to meet a sea-kayaking guide for a safety briefing and gear up for a few hours’ easy paddling in twin kayaks along the False Bay coast. (These are safe, comfortable ‘sit-on-top’ kayaks, which require almost no balance or skill!)
Paddle to Boulders Beach’s colony of African Penguins and view them from the ocean as they swim around this quaint cove. Leave the kayaks and lunch at a local seafood restaurant.
From here, drive down the coast into the Cape of Good Hope National Park with its many endemic species, including Bontebok, Baboon and Cape Mountain Zebra, as we make for the tip of the Peninsula at Cape Point – the south westernmost point of Africa. Walk up to the lighthouse for a photo op across the staggering vistas of False Bay.
Leave the reserve, passing the beaches of Noordhoek and over Chapman’s Peak Drive (600m above the ocean and one of the world’s most breathtaking coastal passes). Take in the picturesque fishing hamlet of Hout Bay and then head citywards along the Atlantic Seaboard, through Camps Bay and Bantry Bay. From June to November, Southern Right Whales can often be seen just offshore from the road.
Entrance Fees for Sea Kayaking (scheduled basis), Cape Point, Funicular, Penguins and Chapman’s Peak Drive. A la carte Lunch and bottled water.
