Customer Reviews

Incredible experience unlike anything I've ever done before! I'll honestly never forget it. Thank you Penguin Paddle! - Micaella

I am a local tour guide in Cape Town and booked this experience for my guests from Canada and Belgium. It was their highlight of the day. The instructors are knowledgeable and patient. It's a much better way to view penguins than on the decks. We managed to fit this activity on our Cape Point tour. I would highly recommend it. - Gervais

This was a great experience! The instructors/group leader is very knowledgeable and made the paddle seem much shorter than what it was. Great views along the coast line. - Etienne
