Such a great experience and a super guide. Take your time and slow. This is South Africa. That's how our tour started. Without stress and completely relaxed. Sunscreen and a shower for afterwards were also provided for us. It was explained to us before we went to the open sea what we have to consider. And that's where it started. The guide told us a lot. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins. That was a bit of a shame, but you have no control over that. The tour was planned for 2 hours, but only lasted about 1 hour 15 minutes. The sea got rougher and so we had to turn back. For the remaining 45 minutes we would have been happy about an alternative or the tours have to start earlier. Otherwise it was a great experience. Gladly again :)

be prepared to get wet and maybe swim - no matter what you are told. and sometimes the sea conditions are cold. best to go on a calm day. our boat tipped in the waves while paddling out. was all good fun and safe though. Dolphins cannot be guaranteed but amazing if you see them.

Instead of a 2 hour tour, our guide only spent an hour with us, even though the weather was suitable. In addition, the guide rode constantly at a distance of about 100m from us and never checked if we were okay (even though he knew that it was our first kayak tour). During the tour he exchanged a maximum of 3 sentences with us, which were not relevant to the tour. We couldn't take any breaks either because he was always so far away from us and we were worried that we would capsize. We didn't see any animals either! (Although he promised we would paddle to Robberg Nature Reserve.) All in all an unsatisfactory tour and a waste of money.
