Kayak Paddling Escapade





Paddling your kayak on the sea is considered way more adventurous than paddling on an inland dam. If you haven’t tried this, next time you are in the Western Cape contact Simon’s Town Sea Kayak Tours. With some luck you will also catch penguins out and about their daily business.

Sea kayaks are specifically designed to be seaworthy. These little boats are comfy enough to be used for week long ocean tours and can be big enough for three paddlers or you could fit in camping gear and supplies.

When swells allow you can surf your kayak to improve speed. This skill is very useful on longer trips. The kayak surfs down the intermittent swells.

Simon’s Town Sea Kayak Tours is a great place to begin. You get a basic run down of how to and going in a group eliminates difficulties you may otherwise not know how to handle.
