What is SEAL KAYAKING all about ?
Kayaking is a way to see the ocean around Hout Bay and the harbour - connecting you with the ocean, and gliding through the seas. With help from our expert guides, we will lead you through a 2 hour journey exploring the hidden corners of Hout Bay harbor and out into the bay itself. This is the MOST AFFORDABLE option out there. You will see ocean wildlife, kelp forests, fynbos mountain cliffs and possible a dolphin, sunfish or whale. A great way to experience Cape Town's outdoor lifestyle.
