Did the sea kayaking with them and had a great time. The sea looked too rough (I wouldn't have gone out on my own) but the briefing was calm and reassuring, so pleased I went out in swells over 10 ft our guide obviously knew the safest route and how close was safe to get close to the breaking waves...

We saw seals and penguins and thanks to the good instruction of tour guide we didn't even fall off the kayak although we got really excited. We can only recommend this tour.

Went kayaking in Hermanus on a warm summer morning, not a cloud in the sky and not a ripple in the water. What an amazing way to start the day. The guides are incredibly knowledgeable and took us on a great paddle. We encountered seals and penguins and various birds. We got up close the seals who were very relaxed.... More

I had such an amazing experience with Walker Bay adventures with my SUP lesson in December. It was very informative and our guide was very knowledgeable. Will most definitely recommend this.

We went Sea Kayaking as an alternative to a whale watching cruise. Herman was very responsive to our email enquiry and we booked in for an 8am trip the following day. The conditions weren't great so it was a pretty wet and choppy experience but the guide was great and I had a lot of confidence in his knowledge and... More

We went out with a double kayak on a guided tour across the bay. It was a windy day, therefore the guide insisted on us getting a tandem, and not singles. This was not a big deal. My son and me enjoyed the trip very much . We saw the seals sleeping among the kelps, We saw some southern right... More

A great way to spend an early morning in Hermanus - eco kayaking in Walker Bay with Herman and team. The kayaks are stable, and do not need to be a pro or even fit! Fascinating info provided from our guide - Ruan - about various aspects of the sea and also to learn about (and we saw) the young... More

Incredible to be kayaking on the Indian Ocean !! Amazing how stable the kayaks are! Fascinating to learn about the young male seals and their behavior. We were able to get quite close to them ! Just to get away from it all and not think of anything else, was truly refreshing !

During an unforgettable kayak experience with a very knowledgeable guide, I jumped into the water and lost my GoPro. 100% my own fault since the stick was already broken. The GoPro fell to the bottom of the ocean and I was unable to find it back. For already two months I was traveling through SA and never made a back-up... More
