Lagoon Kayaking & Picnic
Lagoon Kayaking & Picnic Experience
The Cape Whale Coast is home to an abundance of marine life, which you can get up close and personal with on this experience. Glide across the pristine Walker Bay while enjoying a unique view of the town, mountains, cliffs and sea life.
After an in-depth briefing with your guides that covers kayaking techniques and safety, you paddle out of the historic Old Harbour in the heart of Hermanus and go on a round trip of the bay (direction is wind-, swell- and paddling-experience- dependent).
During the months of June – November, you’re also able to see whales in the bay. However, the Marine Reserve laws prohibit us from being closer than 300 meters to a whale, which still gives you an incredible close encounter with them from the water.
This kayaking experience is also very environmentally-aware, with an operator focused on ecologically-friendly experiences. The lack of noise due to the kayaks makes this a very unobtrusive tour for the marine life, which includes seals, sunfish, whales and many others.
