What you'll do

The most exciting & unique way to experience the ocean around Simon's Town which is famous for its biodiversity, rich marine life & spectacular views of the surrounding Table Mountain range. We depart from our private launching facility from the Simon's Town pier which is located in a protected bay. We meander past the yacht basin & the naval base into open Atlantic waters. We travel along a scenic stretch of coastline, towards the world famous African penguin colony at Boulders beach, visiting a seal colony on route. We often encounter playful Cape fur seals, other marine life and various sea birds along the way. During whale season, it is possible to encounter one of these magnificent mammals on route. You get to experience African penguins in their natural habitat as they head off or return from their hunting trips. Our premium water bikes are designed to be used on the ocean and are propeller driven. Due to the elevated sitting position, you do not get wet and your ride is smooth and comfortable. Our premium water bikes are silent, do not emit any emissions, & they will allow you to safely explore without an environmental footprint. This unique experience with the Penguins viewed from a water bike is only possible from Simon's
