Highlights
    What to Expect
    You leave from Simon's Town Waterfront jetty on Wharf Street at 8.30am, returning 2 hours later and paddle out past the Naval Harbour where you get a view of some of the biggest vessels and out to Boulder's Beach to see the penguins - and how better to see the famous penguins than in their own element. Expect to see Cape Fur seals on the way as well. If the time and tide is right you will stop on a local beach for a swimming break or even jump off the kayaks for a dip. You then paddle back to your launch site at the jetty enjoying the magnificent views of the Table Mountain range towards the fabled Cape Point.
