Chapman’s Peak Paddle - Hout Bay (2 hours)

  • About 2 hours


The inaccessible coastline around Chapman’s Peak is arguably the most scenic in Cape Town and we get to explore it by kayak! You’ll spot hidden beaches and caves and the water is often so clear you can see right to the bottom! This is an in and out paddle as we don’t have many places to land but it offers the most spectacular views of the bay looking over the Sentinel. Our kayak trips are suited to all skill levels and we have purchased locally designed and manufactured double sit on top kayaks from Vagabond kayaks. These are super stable, comfortable and fast kayaks with ample room for storage. We have developed three routes around the peninsular so if conditions are not suitable, we can often offer an alternative route.

Minimum group size is 4 guests for the activity to go ahead. If the amount is not reached, we will contact you to reschedule.


Your guide will meet you at the beach or slipway (directions will be sent to you). You’ll don your PFD and receive a safety briefing before setting off for 2 hours on the water. You’ll finish back at the same spot.

Definitely the company to go for when planning a kayak trip, well organised and loads of fun! We had the pleasure of having Andrew the owner and guide taking us for a longer than standard trip and it was amazing. Will for sure make use of their services again.

We had an amazing time River Rafting at Palmiet. Everything from the booking to our drive home was great. Sonja was great to deal with and very responsive via email and phone. Phil, Aron and Mike were extremely well organised and made safety their first priority, not selling us short on fun and exhilaration. The oaks did really well. I will most definitely be back with some other mates.

Just a heads up to wear some comfortable shoes (that can get wet) for the 20 - 30min walk with your raft to the start.

Great company. Excellent trips and adventures in and around Cape Town. Sea kayaking, tubing, canyoning, coastering and rafting.

Best place to go for all your Rafting and Kayaking adventures! Ocean or whitewater river. Great guides who are passionate about it.

Excellent experience and well worth the money. The organisation is superb and with the river at low levels an alternative section of the river was covered. The catering and entertainment supplied by the guides was top notch. Kudos to Andrew, Coby and the rest of the team. We were a group of 23 (adults and children) and everyone enjoyed themselves! The equipment is good quality. Even on day 4 the drinks were still cold in the cool boxes supplied.
