The Adventurous Side of Cape Town

The Adventurous Side of Cape Town

From high speed power boats to stepping off the edge of the iconic Table Mountain, Cape Town has it all!

Penguin Paddle

Using easy to paddle two man kayaks, explore the cool, sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean to view the resident penguins of Boulders Beach in all their glory.   As you glide through the water, watch as the penguins play, dive and dance in the waves during this unique experience.

Power Boat Excursions

Choose from two spectacular trips and discover the Cape as it was first viewed by the adventurous explorers of old. 

Cape Point - The Cape of Storms, learn all about the history of the shipwrecks, ghost ships and sea life which have made this peninsula famous.  Take a high speed journey round the Cape of Storms in a powerboat and experience the dramatic rugged beauty of Cape Point and the endless stunning views.

Hout Bay - Head to the favourite dining venue of the Great White Shark, Duiker Island and experience the colony of Cape Fur Seals.  With the majestic Sentinel Mountain as your backdrop, follow the rugged coastline to view the wreck of the Boss 400 before following Chapman's Peak back to the harbour.

Table Mountain Cycle

Nowhere else in the world does an area of such spectacular beauty and rich bio-diversity exist almost entirely within a metropolitan area as it does in the thriving and cosmopolitan city of Cape Town.   Cape Town’s iconic landmark offers bumpy off road single tracks for experienced riders and gentle tar for the novice with the option of finishing in Camps Bay.

Cape Point Cycle

Cycle to the Cape of Good Hope and see ostrich, baboons, antelope and even whales. Several route options are available.  Explore the Cape Point Nature Reserve on two wheels while enjoying the natural wildlife and fynbos indigenous to the Cape.

Township Cycle

Experience the vibrant culture of Township life whilst on a cycling tour through Masiphumelele.  With a local guide leading the way, weave through the community stopping along the way to visit an informal creche, the pavement shops and watching a traditional Sangoma work her African Magic!

The tour offers a real insight into township life and the entrepreneurial spirit and humour that shines through, leave feeling you really have experienced being part of this great community.

Deep Sea Fishing

Departing from Hout Bay this full day excursion is for the very keen fisherman as the travelling distance to deep sea is far. The rewards can be huge though with Tuna and Yellow Tail being the most common catches.

Hike Table Mountain

There are dozens of spectacular hiking routes on Table Mountain ranging from an easy wander across the Table Top to a challenging summit hike.

Table Mountain Abseil

Experience the worlds' highest natural commercial abseil by daring to step from an amazing 1000 meters into a 112 meter abseil off Table Mountain!  Enjoy the spectacular views and after you reach the bottom take a guided walk back to the top of this iconic Mountain.

Sky Diving

Feel the rush of adrenalin as you “fly” through the air! Tandem Freefall from 9000ft attached to a skydive instructor. After an amazing 30 second freefall your shoot will open and you will float down to earth enjoying the panoramic views of Cape Town.

Surf Lessons

Surfers will teach you how to catch that “ultimate wave”.  Experience the great surf South Africa has to offer, with the most beautiful amazing landscapes, crystal blue water and sandy white beaches.  Surf lessons include water safety, beach introduction and the ABC of surfing. All equipment is supplied (surfboard, wetsuit, leash) and they will have you standing up in no time!


Sand boarding in the Atlantis Dunes is a 45min drive from the centre of town and the trip would be 2 hours in duration, which includes walk-in and walk-out time from the Dunes.
