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

I trust Herman, first to keep me safe & then to deliver a first rate tour. He called off our kayak trip because the weather was behaving unpredictably. I have been on other tours, for example during a holiday in Peru, where the safety & enjoyment of the tourists came a distant second to making a quick profit. Herman &... More

We went rowing on the ocean with Riaan and within the first 15 minutes there was a penguin following us. A couple of moments later 2 more penguins joined us. Then we rowed past 2 seals lounging around in the kelp forest that couldn't be bothered with us. The wind started picking up so we made a final round through... More

Herman and his team with their bright yellow cano's is synonemous with Walker Bay, Hermanus and Adventure. You don't have to be super fit or extremely athletic to enjoy this excursion. The rowing is at a relaxed pace and there are lots to see and experience during this 2 hour fun exercise.

It is run by a German couple who were extremely helpful anf friensly. Our Walker Bay whale watching from a small boat was first class. We saw hundreds of seals, humpback whales mating and... More

Booked to Kayak on the sunday of our weekend away in Hermanus, but the weather took a turn, so on the Saturday went down to enquire. Was told it was fully booked but could see if there were any no shows for the last trip. Was totally unprepared but didn't want to miss out on our chance to kayak, as... More
