In addition our EXPLORE, ADVENTURE and LEARN activities, we organise special events.

This might be a women’s only event, a full-moon outing or a celebration of the arrival of spring.These are typically one to two hour events, held at a specific location. A limited number of Vagabond craft are available for these events, and you are welcome to bring your own craft.

A special event worthy of attention is the Paddle Fit social activity, having the purpose of experiencing the Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve environs while getting fitter and meeting like-minded paddlers. A service provided to the broader paddling community is transporting craft to ocean racing and river racing events, such as the Pete Marlin event in East London. Craft are collected in Cape Town and transported to the event venue and returned to Cape Town.


This is an organised group paddle to get a little fitter and meet some fun folk. This could involve anything from a leisurely cruise to view the birdlife to a time trial, depending on the mood.
We meet on the water’s edge at the southern extremity of the Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve for an hour of activity. The vlei is at its best in the early part of the day as there is usually less wind and it starts to get warmer.
All equipment is provided (kayaks, paddles and lifejackets), although you are welcome to bring your own craft. Our boats are the Vagabond doubles and singles.
Advance booking is essential if you don’t bring your own boat.

CONTACT US to make sure you are kept up to date with our paddle fit sessions, which are set to restart soon!

Paddling is a great way to build team cohesion and have fun at the same time. We are mobile so can provide a team building service at several locations within the greater Cape Town environs. Paddle Experience can provide input on the venue and what can be done in an activity. Although we include experienced guides, the client has to provide a facilitator. We can cater for up to twelve paddlers, creating the ideal space in which you get the desired results.
We provide kayaks, paddles and lifejackets. Our boats are the Vagabond doubles and singles.
Booking on request.
