Enjoy the best view of the Hout Bay harbour, Chapman’s Peak and the Sentinel when you kayak in Hout Bay with Venture Forth International. Guided trips depart from the beach and cover a 4-6 kilometre route in the bay. You may have a close-up encounter with seals, paddle alongside dolphins and, in season, have the pleasure of watching whales from your kayak. A variety of sea birds are present year-round.
Friendly, qualified kayak guides brief you on the route, conditions and safety before you launch through the surf. Kayaks, PFDs (‘life jackets’) and paddles are provided for this family-friendly activity. A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen as well as appropriate clothing for kayaking as well as a change of clothing for afterwards are essential.
At only 1-2 hours in duration, a quick paddle can be squeezed into a busy holiday or business schedule. If you – or a child – is interested in taking up the sport of sea kayaking, a trip with Venture Forth International is what you need. As we provide equipment, you can try this sport, chat to our guides and learn the basics before investing in personal equipment.
