The beauty of Table Mountain, Lions Head and the Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the comfort of our kayaks is unrivalled.

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 tantalised.

Highly recommend Atlantic Outlook as an experience both tourists and locals can enjoy. We were lucky enough to have perfect conditions for our 7am tour - seeing dolphins, sunfish and seals swimming alongside us - it is definitely worth the early morning. Our guides, Shanti and Jordan, were incredibly friendly and helpful, making us feel safe every step of the way , while also displaying a large amount of respect for the ocean and its wildlife. The perfect experience if you want to see Cape Town from a different perspective.

It was an amazing experience. Truly wonderful 2 hours and we got to kayak right into a school of dolphins feeding which was epic. We did glimpse 2 whales but they were far off the shore. The two guides are fun polite that made it an entirely wonderful experience. Definitely would do it again and again

Excellent kayaking experience. Didn’t see much marine life but a well put together operation. Very easy to get to as you can park right next to their office. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Well organized and hospitable hosts. Decent kayaks. The only problem was that we saw nothing and the whole journey in sea was roughly an hour - the rest of the time was getting organized, waiting for a late comer, and getting instructions. The problem is that they have to get back for the next round so there is no possibility of extending the tour a little extra which would be nice since, as I mentioned, we saw completely nothing in the sea.

My friends and I had such an amazing experience on this tour. We went on the 7am trip and the conditions were beautiful. Our tour guide was very helpful and made me feel very safe. Such breathtaking views of Cape Town, and an added bonus of the dolphins playing right along side of us!! highly recommend this tour.
