Customer Reviews

This was the best thing that they had ever put in wikideals! It was so much fun and it’s amazing to do with your special human. It was romantic , exciting and very very informative . I would recommend this to literally everyone as you can not be in Cape Town with out seeing the city from this point of veiw. We will definitely be back - WIKI Kaylin Parenzee

Was absolutely fantastic. We have done other kayaking trips that were a little too much like hard work. There was plenty of time to chill and enjoy the scenery on the Hout Bay trip as well as stretches of exertion. What a magical experience to be under the arbour/jetty. Really informative guides. Interesting and fun morning out. - Siobhan Cassidy

Wonderful experience even when we saw no dolphins. Friendly tour guides. Instructions, tips, etc explained and easily understood. - Helene van Heerden

Awesome crew and what a great experience this was - Lusanda

what a fantastic experience! Great exercise with incredible views across Hout Bay. Saw dolphins ans a sunfish and had a little detour under the pier - definitely a must! Tjaart, our guide was very helpful, and knowledgeable, and puts safety first. Highly recommend this trip if you are in the area! - Bronwyn Maree
