- Chance to sea ocean wildlife - dolphin, seals, sun fish and occasionally wales
The beauty of Table Mountain, Lions Head and the Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the comfort of our kayaks is unrivaled. Our 2-hour Kayak Tour will take you along the stunning Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the V&A Waterfront, past the Green Point lighthouse, to the Mouille Point lighthouse before cruising back to base at the Atlantic Outlook clubhouse. Dolphins, seals, penguins, sunfish and occasionally whales frequent our Cape Town waters and while we may not be lucky enough to encounter all this beautiful wildlife on every tour, we can assure you that all your senses will be tantalized. Let’s go Kayaking!

Frequently Asked Questions
It's not a ton of kayaking, we sat a lot to wait for the larger group to catch up / huddle together. Beautiful views of Cape Town!
Jordy is a legend. His charisma freakin rocks and makes the whole experience.
See some wild ones out there, be a wild one, splish splash, get wet. It's grand.
Kayaking with Jordy!! We are missioning bru! What an epic morning for wildlife. The kayaks were easy to maneuver and great for viewing the wildlife and fun with the group.
What better way to start a day then out on the ocean amongst the dolphins, seals and sunfish?! Absolutely lekker 🤩
Ocean Life. 1st timer here, so the wobbly (instability of the waves) was scary at first, but once I got over that, it was really fun.
You will definitely still get wet even though you don't get in the water at all. But in March, the air was warm and the water was cool, so it was fine. We saw dolphins, seals, and a ginormous sun fish.
