After a thorough briefing on kayaking techniques & safety we paddle from the historical old harbour and do a round trip, the direction dependant on winds, swells and paddling abilities. A knowledgeable guide shall open the wonders of our ocean to you, as you explore nature up close.
Our Kayaks come from France and are sit on top self-bailing ,plastic sea kayaks. In short this means that anyone, weather you have kayaked before or not, can hop on and stay on.
Our guides are qualified in boat based whale watching, first aid at sea and hold theta qualifications but more importantly they love this job and hold great knowledge of the ocean.
From June to December the area becomes a Whale sanctuary and Walker Bay Adventures holds an exclusive permit to be able to paddle within it.
To our knowledge we are the only operators in the world that encounter large quantities of whales in such a short space of time. Other sea kayaking trips worldwide need to paddle for a day or even more to encounter the gentle giants of the ocean.
Besides the Southern Right Whales (June – December) we have sightings of Brydes Whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and the occasional illusive otter. Whatever time of year this is an experience not to be missed.
Duration 2 hours. No Experience necessary.
You will need: shorts, t-shirt, sun hat, sunscreen, windbreaker or fleece (Weather dependant), change of clothes for afterwards.
Excessive wind and swell conditions will result in cancellation of the sea kayak trip. We reserve the right to cancel the trip at any given time and shall not be held responsible. We try to avoid this from happening by departing to sea in the mornings when conditions are more favorable. These times change through out the year and can be confirmed on booking.
