About
The view of Signal Hill, Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles is unforgettable. Uninterrupted views of our spectacular mountain range and the sea breeze will leave you feeling rejuvenated and hungry to taste more of what the Mother City has to offer. The trip to Granger Bay takes us past the Green Point Lighthouse, the wrecks of the Seafarer and RMS Athens and to one of the favourite hangouts for our endemic Haviside’s dolphins. They are common companions to our trips – particularly on summer mornings.

      An amazing experience!
      We had an incredible time kayaking with Cape Kayak! The team were very kind and offered to take us out even though we had missed the initial planned departure, for which we are so grateful! Being so close to multiple beautiful southern right whales, plus dolphins and seals, was truly an incredible, unforgettable experience! Even if we hadn’t had these unbelievable encounters with marine life we would still have loved the beautiful views and experiencing the city from the water! Gavin our guide was excellent and we had an amazing trip! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

      Amazing way to explore the ocean
      It is easy to understand why Cape Kayak Adventures is so well rated, they do their fantastic outings with a passion! And what better backdrop than the spectacular Table Mountain with the city sprawling at its feet. The morning outing was really worth the early wake up. The see was calm and the marine life abundant! Even though no sighting is guaranteed we were very lucky to see the local Heaviside dolphins popping up around us. Seals were fishing as well and a massive sunfish was basking in the sun. Just incredible! It is the perfect morning activity and a great way to explore the spectacular nature at Cape Town’s doorstep. Would definitely do this again as no outing is the same!

      New Year Belated Christmas Family Experience
      Thx to our excellent guides John, Deidre and Josh, who shepherded our family group of 5 adults and 5 children safely and expertly out from 3 Anchor Bay along the coastline passed the Green Point stadium. It was a big effort for some of the group but worth the challenge when we were surrounded by feeding and then playing dusky dolphins. And on the way back we encountered a sun fish. Brilliant. The coastal views were beautiful and we were exceptionally lucky with the sea and weather conditions. This trip was worth the effort and gave a great sense of achievement. Even with a couple of our boats needing a tow. Everyone is different but I think 8 years is as young as you want to go and make sure they are happy on the water.

      Bad customer services
      I never went to the activity because the car broke down hence I did not make it on time. I ask for them to at least change the time or date but refused. We asked for refund but never got a response from them. Unforeseen circumstances always occurs, it’s business but be accommodating of unforeseen circumstances. We really were looking forward to this experience

      Super kayaking experience, loved it!
      Really enjoyed the kayaking session. Saw dolphins and a humpback whale in the distance. Great views on the city and mountains from a different perspective. I'm an experienced kayaker but there were also beginners in the group, it worked for all different levels. Our guide Theo was great, really recommend.

      Best Kayaking Experience Yet!
      What an amazing experience! I felt a little nervous at first, but our guides were so knowledgeable, patient and helpful. The views were amazing, we saw some sea life and being on the ocean like that was something I'll always remember.

    What a great experience. Calm waters, spectacular views of the mountains with a beautiful sunset over the sea, seals playing in the water, a whale blowing in the distance and a flash of dolphins. Our guide was exceptional and took very good care of us. Knowledgeable and friendly. The shop facilities were clean and hygienic. The delivery of pictures were instant. Strongly recommended. Will definitely back soon!

    Tracy, the co-owner, is one of the rudest people I have ever met! Humiliating yourself like that in public.

    Want to run a successful business, Tracy? You don't treat paying customers like that.
    Ridiculous and embarrassing.
    She seems to be the common complaint in these negative reviews.

    Hello again. For the record, please remember you booked with another company that asked Cape Kayak to add you to our trip. Our trip departed 15 minutes earlier, which unfortunately you were not told. Our company policy is clear in that clients cannot miss the safety briefing. When a booked customer does not arrive in time for the briefing, we call and check to see if the customer is en route, but since you had not booked or paid us we had no details and proceeded without you, so as not to delay the entire group. Terribly sorry for the inconvenience caused to you both, I know how disappointing it is to miss out on an adventure due to being late, which was not your fault. My bad for allowing a non-booked customer to join on such short notice.
