The guide will meet you get you kitted out with well fitting PFDs (life vests). They'll explain how the kayaks work and help you adjust the foot pegs so that you are comfortable. After a safety briefing and some paddling instruction, you'll head out on to the water for around 2 hours, following a more or less circular route under the towering cliffs of Chapman's peak and around to the harbour with its fishing boats, inquisitive seals and yacht moorings. After that, it's back to the beach where the trip ends.
