Cape Point Marine and Wildlife Adventure

Summary

Explore the Cape Peninsula on this bucket list adventure. You will be guided to miss the crowds and avoid the queues by Justin, a born and bred South African. With a master’s degree in Marine Biology, Justin is a qualified tour guide, divemaster, skipper and is trained in first aid. Justin has spent 10 years working as a marine biologist, establishing and supporting successful research programs in southern Africa and around the world, primarily through tourism.

Keeping a watchful eye on the weather, recent sightings, and the day's conditions, your trip explores a little deeper the Cape's secret places and panoramic vista's - off the beaten track and away from the crowds.

Justin’s experience starts early (7 AM) with a steaming coffee at a Constantia deli and bakery before heading out along the remarkable Chapman’s Peak Drive. We visit the Cape Point National Park for a walk to the iconic Lighthouse and its 360° views over False Bay and the Atlantic seaboard. Next, take a stroll away from the crowds to explore the treasury of life along the rocky shore. From rock pools to boulders, visit the endearing African penguins of Boulders Beach, Simonstown. Your journey will end where it began-a short trip to any of Cape Town’s beautiful beaches, the city centre and the Constantia Winelands

From tours and travel, manatees to manta rays, Justin thrives when sharing his passion with friends old and new.

    This was an exceptional tour. Justin is an excellent and interesting communicator and placed the tour just right. We saw seals, ostriches, elands, baboons and penguins while out and about...it was so much more interesting than if we had tried to just visit the Cape Penisula on our own. Justine also has excellent taste in restaurants. We meet at a charming cafe at 7 AM and then had lunch at a fantastic restaurant while on our tour. Highly recommended!

    WHY? if you feel like walking off the beaten track and discovering great things, then join Justin Cape Penisula Adventure. WHAT? A seven-hour nature experience full of wildlife surprises and absolutely stunning views around (almost)most southern part of the African Continent. Go where no tourists have gone before and discover tidal pools with limpets, mussels, whelks & (cushion) starfish. SEe the most beautiful coloured anemones and get hypnotised by the kelp that just moving back and forth with the currents, while having some rooibos tea and rusks.WHO?Justing is such an easy going guy, super enthusiastic, has a huge amount of knowledge and is a really good storyteller without becoming too scientific. He really is your guy to spend time with at the Cape Peninsula. Justin, thank you so much for an awesome day. My love of Mother Nature has grown even more.

    I've spent a lot of years in Cape Town and have visited parts of the Cape Peninsula before, but during my tour with Justin, I discovered new spots along the coast I didn't even know where there! We ended up is several stunning locations without any other people around. Looking for life in rock pools, snorkelling, spotting larger marine life out at sea.
