Let Paddle Experience take you to explore the beautiful Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve, in our fun and stable double kayaks.

Wow, felt safe the whole time. Thank you again.

Fantastic experience, thank you. Our family really enjoyed it. Your professionalism is seldom found. Being able to customise our "paddle" around Simons Town made it so memorable. Highly recommend. You really went the extra mile. Will certainly be back.
