The Western Cape is practically made for kayaking – large bays, breathtaking views, and relatively calm waters make the region a perfect spot for paddling and enjoying a morning out in the ocean; but where is the best location specifically?
Many will argue that around the Camps Bay area is a prime kayaking zone, but all real kayakers know that Fish Hoek’s sleepy bay holds the ideal location to get the most out of kayak-time.
Not only is the bay protected from any harsh waters, but the warm waters of False Bay provides some other wonderful things to turn your Sunday paddle into a sightseeing safari, of sorts. From seeing the penguins at Boulders Beach to the opportunity to spot some whales breaching around the bay, kayaking in False Bay is not only an enjoyable activity, but a memorable experience that everyone should indulge in. Fish Hoek offers a host of great surf-ski schools to check out.
And if you’re a newcomer, no previous kayaking experience or know-how is required and any able bodied person can do it. Paddling schools in the area take to the waters every day of the year, weather permitting – summer and winter. The winter months are often wonderful for paddling because they have more calm windless days than summer and on those days, it is absolutely beautiful. Plus, there’s a greater chance of seeing whales – bonus!
