Sun, sand, sea and glitz – the weekend isn’t over until you’re relaxing at Shimmy Beach Club
Sea Kayaking Weekend Family Special
Buy one adult kayaking ticket and get a kids ticket FREE with Kaskazi
If you’re looking for a unique, family-friendly outdoor activity on Saturdays and Sundays, why not take the troupe on a spectacular sea kayaking excursion with Kaskazi Kayaks off the coast of Cape Town? You’ll experience absolutely incredible views and almost certainly encounter marine life, and the kids will burn up some energy while you’re at it!
It makes for a great – not to mention cost effective – activity for the whole family, as kids accompanied by a paying adult get to kayak absolutely FREE! To qualify for the special, simply mention CapeTownMagazine.com at the time of booking.
Unlike Kaskazi Kayaks’ regular excursions, the family package doesn’t focus on covering any great distance. Instead, the emphasis is on learning to paddle and steer a kayak and on having loads of fun while doing so.
Depending on the age and energy level of your kids, you may end up paddling a few hundred metres or a kilometre or two, but whatever happens, you’ll get to see, smell and hear a side of Cape Town that few are lucky to experience. The views of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the Cape Town Stadium are incredible and unique. The flat waters of the Atlantic Ocean are idyllic and you’re sure to see some fascinating birds and sea creatures up close, including dolphins, whales, penguins and a variety of other seabirds.
Kaskazi Kayaks in Three Anchor Bay has been leading guided sea kayak tours since 1995 and boasts a 100% safety record.
Ensure your adventure is more enjoyable by being prepared
Dress for the beach. Wear a T-shirt, shorts made of a quick drying fabric and flip-flops. It does get cold on the water so be sure to bring a windbreaker and hat. And don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen.
Bring a change of clothes and a towel. There are showering and changing facilities at the shop, which clients are welcome to use.
The guides will take loads of photos, so don’t bring your camera unless it’s waterproof.
You can leave stuff at the shop while you paddle. Kaskazi will store your valuables in their safe.
