More About Hout Bay
- Hout Bay was originally inhabited by the Khoi people, who called it "Houtkraal" or "Wooden Kraal". The Dutch arrived in the area in the 1650s and renamed it "Hout Bay". The area was used for timber production and fishing, and a small settlement grew up around the harbour. In the 19th century, the area became a popular tourist destination, and the town of Hout Bay was officially founded in 1867. Today, Hout Bay is a thriving town with a population of over 17,000 people. It is a popular tourist destination, known for its beautiful beaches, stunning views of the surrounding mountains, and its fresh seafood. The town is also home to a number of schools, businesses, and community organizations.
Our standard kayak tours commence at 9 am, and we conduct them every two hours. All groups are paired with an experienced and friendly tour guide. Your tour guide has several certifications, including medical first aid and personal survival techniques. All excursions begin with a brief introduction by your tour guide. Then they will help you get acquainted with the basics of kayaking, which is especially necessary if you’re new to this activity. The introduction includes a safety demonstration to ensure all guests have a safe and comfortable tour. You’ll also be fitted with a life jacket. Once you hit the water, your tour guide will lead the group to different checkpoints. You’ll get a tour of the harbour, during which your tour guide will enlighten you with their vast knowledge.
