Don't be scared - this really is an experience never to be forgotten. I'm hopeless at paddling, am a weak swimmer and get sea-sick just looking at the water but I had the most fabulous experience on the Walker Bay sea-kayak trip with my husband and 14 year old daughter.

We got close (but not too close!) to the stunning whales; saw a mother and calf and heard all about whale yoghurt! Saw full adult breaching x 3 which is amazing to see at sea level! Watched a seal fighting with and eating a sting-ray and, most excitingly, interacted with a couple of juvenile seals who thought all 7 kayaks were there to be swum next to and under, splashing the occupants whenever they could! What a treat. Don't think about it - just do it!

Western Province Vodacom Cup team made history in 2012 by winning the Vodacom Cup for the first time since its inception in 1998. What also makes this victory so special is that the 2012 team had gone unbeaten making it 10 out of 10.

Our motto for the season was: ‘being good people’. This for us meant that we had to look hard at ourselves and make sure that we leave an impression on everyone that we had contact with, from our fiercest opponents to the bus driver. It all had to start within the team, respecting each other’s background, beliefs and knowing that success for the team meant a better future for the individuals in the team. This drove us through tough times and formed a bond that will always be within WP Vodies 2012.

The journey started in Hermanus on 11 February 2012. A group of 30 players got together uncertain about the next few months and what was needed for success. The most important part of the Hermanus Camp was to form friendships, establish strong leaderships, getting the right reason for doing things and start being good people.

This is where we got to meet Herman and his team from Walkerbay Adventures. The activities and understanding of the needs for what we wanted to achieve made it a perfect start for us. Hermanus and its people was a great example of good people. Friendly, willing to help and there was always a plan. Walkerbay Adventures put an amazing Camp together. A lot of time and effort went in to helping us and making sure that we could experience the awesome activities in and around Hermanus.

This was the first of many visits. Thanks to everyone at Walkerbay Adventures for making an impression on us.

We went mountain biking Saturday. We had the possibility to follow 4 different tracks following the distance - difficulty path you wanted to do. The scenery is beautiful.
Sunday we went kayaking and had a great time. Learned plenty of things on the whales and the sea life. What ever you would like to do, just ask Herman, and he will arrange it for you.

I've done this trip several times now and it's always fantastic. My sister in law was over from the UK - so took her. She had an awesome time! Kayaking is such a fun thing to do! We were too early in the season to see whales (but only by about 2 weeks, as they are in the bay now). Saw lots of seals though. They swam around the kayak - amazing!

Herman and his staff were as proffessional and organised as ever. Great service - Well done!!

We decided to try the kayaking as friends of ours had been the day before and run into a pod of 500 dolphins. So, not expecting too much, we went down on an amazingly warm autumn day and found out there were some Bredes Whales in the harbour feeding. Totally out of season, we couldnt believe our luck so we headed out with our equally excited guide.

The experience was absolutely fantastic. Once out of the water we saw, penguins, dolphins, seals and then the whales came to take a look at us and started breaching around the kayaks. I have been whale watching before from a boat but this was a step up. We were right in the action and I must admit to getting a little nervous when a 20 metre whale went right under our cayak, but it was just amazing.

The staff were fantastic and we got some amzing photos taken from the shore to show off to our friends with. We tried to stay away from the whales and respect their space, but they came to see us, curious we were told! You cannot expect such an experience, our luck was incredible but I truly reccommend a great company. Take a chance and you might get as lucky as we did. The worst that will happen is a great days kayaking with other fantastic wildlife and scenery. STRONGLY RECCOMMEND!
