Gliding across the ocean on the world's most advanced water bike is a totally new and unique way to experience the incredible marine environment of False Bay – renowned for its stunning ocean and mountain views and marine wild life, including whales, dolphins, seals and the famous African penguin colony.
Cape Town Water Bikes is the most exciting and unique way to experience the ocean around Simon's Town, which is famous for its rich marine life and 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. After an instruction and safety briefing, we meander past the yacht basin and 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. 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. From your elevated position on a water bike, 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 silent, do not emit any emissions, do not require fuel and 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 Town. We offer a 2 hour guide tour to the penguins and rentals for 30 min and one hour.
