Whether you’re up for a quick trip around the harbour or keen to undertake the full two-hour journey to check out humpback dolphins, seals and white sharks at Seal Island, the Simon’s Town Boat Company has got you covered. Go between August and December if you want to get a glimpse of the southern right whales as they frolic about with their babes.
If you’ve got even more time on your hands, take a laid-back cruise around Cape Point and see the scattering of shipwrecks that have been laid to waste by the stormy seas through the years. The penguin-spotting kayak trip takes double kayaks out to Boulder’s Beach; the trip includes refreshments, swimming and snorkeling.
