EXPLORE, ADVENTURE and LEARN with Paddle Experience.

We bring you experiences that remain in memory for a lifetime. Jump onto one of our kayaks to appreciate Cape Town and its environs from a river, estuary or the open sea.

Even with limited paddling experience, there should be something of interest for you. This could be an ADVENTURE tour through the historical Simon’s Town harbour or the abundant bird life on the Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve.

It is easy to commence a paddling journey with us. Having completed an ADVENTURE activity, you can join us on an extended EXPLORE package that ventures further afield. As your desire for paddling escalates and you want to go further and perhaps faster, you can sign up for a series of LEARN modules to enhance your paddling skills.


Paddle Experience offers an assortment of EXPLORE packages and ADVENTURE tours in the Cape Town environs and beyond. We also offer coaching through our LEARN initiative and host SPECIAL EVENTS to introduce individuals to paddling.

Packages and tours are arranged to align closely with the abilities of participants, making these accessible to individuals at all levels. No activity should be significantly intimidating or overwhelming. Accredited guides and coaches lead and support every activity.

We also offer customised activities for families, groups and team-building workshops. This could be to celebrate a special event, a river proficiency workshop or a downwind activity. Paddle Experience operates a fully mobile unit, giving us the opportunity to access diverse locations.

Paddle Experience undertakes to:
– ensure safety first, have fun second
– provide a challenging activity in interesting spaces
– share its passion for kayaking in the natural environment
– make a positive impact on the world around us

Some risk comes with being on the water, and while we take every precaution to promote a successful and safe outing, you are required to complete an indemnity form and disclose any adverse medical condition. Even though we use stable craft, you need a sense of adventure, because you are exposed to the environmental conditions of wind and water.
