Kayaking with Penguins is an exhilarating and one-of-a-kind opportunity to discover and experience not only the Boulders Beach Penguin colony, but also Simon's Town and its Naval Harbour, where we pass by some of South Africa's largest naval warships. Boulders Beach in Simon’s Town is home to a land-based colony of endangered African Penguins. The beautiful False Bay coastline welcomes you to explore its warm inviting waters and to embark on a sea kayaking adventure of a lifetime. Hop into one of our sturdy, stable kayaks and take a guided trip to the iconic landmark of Boulders Beach. In 1985, when the first pair of relocated African (Jackass) penguins began to lay eggs, the suburban seaside village of Simon’s Town had no idea that Boulders Beach would become home to a colony of over 2350 penguins! Nature enthusiasts may best enjoy this spectacular colony from the water, while basking in the Cape Town sun and taking in the beautiful land and sea vistas of False Bay. Boulders Beach offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with penguins on a semi-private beach. But beware, these charming, waddling birds carry nasty bites. Take advantage of the August to October Whale Season to spend time with these spectacular and endangered marine creatures in their natural surroundings. If you are an avid adventure seeker or nature lover and have felt the exhilaration of the many exciting adventure activities that Cape Town has to offer, you must know that your “adventure resume” is simply not complete without a kayaking trip on the warm waters of False Bay to the Boulders Beach African Penguin colony.
