“Great kayaking experience”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

if one wants to do adventurous thing, this is the one.
Very nice place for kayaking, beautiful beach, with all necessary gears and well informed guide and more than 5 km kayaking to the deep sea. Loved it.
Best time is to do this kayaking is during whale season or summers.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

I did the two hour sea kayaking trip. It was excellent, we saw penguins and got within 10 metres of sea lions. Our guide was a really nice guy and very knowledgable. The highlight for me was the scenery, it's great to get a view back at the coast line with mountains behind. I can highly recommend to anyone!

“What a great and enjoyable day!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

This is one of the highlights of my recent trip to Cape Town, the weather cleared for me to do a sea kayak with Walker Bay Adventures. The trip was really well organised, and we got to see whales and seals up close. Both Herman and Riaan were really friendly, and were able to share many details about the sea conditions, the animals. The views from the sea was gorgeous, and it is such an intimate an environmental friendly way to experience the Atlantic Ocean swells, the marine life and really just soak in the sun and surrounds. Do not worry at all about no kayaking experience, as the kayak is really easy, and I would recommend this activity for anyone visiting Hermanus! This is really an excellent activity.

Reviewed 24 June 2013

Herman took us Kayaking out of the whale season. He was exceptional; knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.We saw a pod of more than 100 dolphins come right past us, many seals including a seal killing and eating a small shark. It was an excellent morning adventure and Herman was very helpful with local information. Exceptional.
