The spectacular water and stunning coastline of Hout Bay, in Cape Town, South Africa, is a truly special and beautiful place, and I will guide you on this half-day kayaking tour around the bay and its surroundings as we find the best spots to uncover the sublime views back to shore, learn about the interesting history of the bay and nearby Chapmans Peak, and frolic about with the cute seals that inhabit the waters.

Hout Bay is located in a valley on the Atlantic Coast, 20km from the centre of Cape Town, South Africa. It is a very popular location for leisure and tourism, with activities such as surfing, fishing and kayaking quite prominent.

Our adventure begins when we meet at the harbor, where all relevant safety gear and information will be dispensed.

It is then time to hit the water, as we head out through the lush blue water and are instantly exposed to some absolutely jaw-dropping views back to the shore, with the world-famous Table Mountain looming large above.

Over the course of the half-day we will take you to some of our favorite spots in order to observe more sumptuous scenery and views, and we will also take the time to explain the rich and complex history of the region.

An undoubted highlight for many is the opportunity to spot some of the marine wildlife that calls the bay home, with endearing cape fur seals often making an appearance.

After a few hours of kayaking we head back to the harbor, where our journey ends, hopefully having given you a fantastic experience and insight in to Hout Bay.

This is a brilliant way to spend a half-day seeing some of the best views in Cape Town – book now to experience!
