Start by experiencing the beauty of Table Mountain, Lions Head, and the Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the comfort of a kayak. This 2-hour guided activity will take you along the stunning Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the V&A Waterfront, past the Green Point lighthouse, before cruising back to base. Paddle into the fresh movement of the ocean where you will encounter active marine life and possibly catch a glimpse of some local dolphins, whales, seals, penguins, and sunfish!

We then continue by boarding retro tandem bikes and cruising along the iconic Sea Point Promenade. Soaking up the atmosphere, the ever- fascinating daily life of this buzzing stretch of urban coastline. This is a 2,5 hour activity.

Our adventure begins at the foot of Table Mountain. Step into the Cable Car and enjoy the scenic ascent to the peak, just over a kilometre above. Views of the City Bowl and far out to sea are phenomenal, and once we reach the summit, the world’s original highest commercial abseil awaits. Drop into pure vertical space and look up at the Twelve Apostles rising above, with the Atlantic Ocean all around. Overall, this adventure will last about 45 minutes to an hour, with a short hike to get you back to the top of Table Mountain.

You will race up to 155 meters above the tree canopy, for as long as 500 meters, with the higher and longer cables this activity only means one thing- faster slides. This activity lasts 2 hours. 

Motor bike side cars – Atlantic coastal ride

This classic motorcycle tour of the Atlantic Seaboard is a stylish journey in vintage World War II sidecars, complete with leather bomber jackets and retro tank helmets to complete the look.

This brief 'hopper' gives you the best-abbreviated tour. Leave from the V&A Waterfront and fly past the city bowl, the new Cape Town Stadium, the famous four beaches of Clifton, the white sands of Camps Bay and the majestic Twelve Apostles before making an about turn back to the Waterfront.

Peninsula beach horse ride

This activity lasts 4 - 5 hours. 

Whale watching boat safari

South Africa is renowned for offering some of the most outstanding viewings of Southern Right whales. There’s no doubt that the most exhilarating way to fully appreciate these ocean giants is to board a whale-watching boat out of Gansbaai Harbour.
