We had a great time in kayaks paddling around the bay. Saw Whales breaching and seals. Very friendly nice people run this. R400 each, bargain. You can also purchase at reasonable price a copy of the pics they take on you tour.

The kayak trip by itself was great fun. Being out on the ocean was such a zen yet exciting experience. We saw whales breaching and came within touching distance of seals. Fun trip!
