What an awesome experience!! Loved every minute of it. Enjoyed the history of Hout Bay. Was my first time out in the ocean on a Kayak. Guides made me feel super at ease. Would definitely do it again!! Highly Recommended!!!

We had a super amazing experience and almost felt like a tourist (although we live in Cape Town)! Very informative and a great explanation of the safety rules, which assures you are in good hands. We had perfect conditions and, Archie, our guide took us around the bay, sharing interesting historical facts and we even go to see some shy dolphins. We will definitely return and bring friends along!

Best experience we've had in a long time with amazing guidance, history lesson and amazing people who made the experience worth the trip!

Kayak Adventures is a must, both for locals and tourists. My experience with them is certainly a positive one and I was impressed how they kept in touch with me via emails/phone, despite some bad weather which saw our first appointment cancelled. The guides are friendly and helpful and the actual kayaking is very relaxed and lasts approximately 1.5 hours with several breaks for snacks/drinks and history snippets about the surrounds.
Worth it!
