Duiker Island Guided Kayak Tour

Hout Bay

Activity Description

Duiker Island, in Hout Bay, is a popular spot for visitors looking to observe the surrounding wildlife. It is home to a large colony of Cape Fur seals, which can be seen from the Hout Bay harbour. The island is also a popular nesting spot for birds, with over 20 species of birds, including African penguins, cormorants, gulls, and terns, living on the island. If you are looking for more wildlife-spotting opportunities, you can take a kayak tour to visit the seal colony or a sea-birding kayak tour to get up close and personal with some of the island’s feathered residents. Our trips are led by knowledgeable and experienced professional guides.
