PRIVATE FULL DAY
Tour Code: FA04
√ Travel through many famous coastal suburbs of the Cape and traverse one of the world's most spectacular passes - Chapman's Peak.
√ Navigate the False Bay coastline on a sea kayak (weather permitting) and visit the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
√ Spot wildlife in the Table Mountain National Park, and explore the rocky coastline, the Cape fynbos vegetation and the south-westernmost point of Africa - Cape of Good Hope - and the lighthouse.

Our first port of call will be in Simonstown where you will meet your sea kayaking guide for a safety briefing and gear up for a few hours' easy paddling (weather permitting) in twin kayaks along the False Bay coast. Pass the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach and view them from the ocean as they swim around the quaint cove.
A sumptuous lunch will replenish your energy before we explore the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park, home to fabulous birds and very special fauna, such as Cape mountain zebra, bontebok and the charismatic Chacma baboon. Climb (or ride the unique, 'Flying Dutchman' funicular) to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay.
We then head home along the dramatic Atlantic seaboard and navigate the 114 curves of 600m high Chapman's Peak Drive passing the picturesque fishing hamlet of Hout Bay, Llandudno and Bakoven (with their ghostly shipwrecks),the towering Twelve Apostles, and on through Camps Bay and Bantry Bay.
NB. Our sea kayaks safe and comfortable and require almost no balance or skill.
