Customer Reviews

This was a wonderful activity on the top of my list of things to do in Cape Town. The bikes are very interesting. The boat goes out with you to assure safety but leaves you to enjoy and explore. There is no rush but assistance close by if needed. The experience is very unique. We saw seals and penguins so close to us - this was wonderful and this could classify both as an adventure activity as well as a relaxing experience. If it is your first time I would recommend the guided tour as the experience of waterbiking to Boulder's Beach is an absolute must. Booking is so easy and all the details are given on the website. Payment done via the website is stress free, and sorting out all the admin prior makes the actual day so much more relaxing. The owners are so friendly and the business is professional yet has adds that personal touch. They even took photos for us of the whole experience from the boat and added it on their Facebook site, since you would not necessarily want to take the risk of dropping your phone. Great experience! - Narise Jansen van Vuuren

If you can ride a bike with stabilisers, you will enjoy this. It was great fun setting out to sea under your own steam, with a great view all around. We saw seals and penguins basking and playing in the water and although we had the two hour bike tour it felt like no time at all. Very enjoyable! - Suki Gibson

Absolutely loved it. We all did. I would have liked to cut the corner of cycling off when the water got a bit choppy. But I’m a bit unfit. I have put it on Facebook and hope that people are coming to enjoy your special bikes. We will all definitely be back soon. I believe that you definitely need to have available minimum 6 bikes. Especially if family of 5’s are wanting to cycle. Well done and good luck. Awesome experience - Mary Connock

Absolutely fantastic experience.... the girls did say the seats were a bit hard but ebjoyed every nano second. Well worth it and i truly hope u go from strength to strength. An experience that will be shared for long time to come. They loved the seals and penguins the interacted with whilst in the waterbike. Thank you so so much. - Karen Styles

Absolutely amazing experience. Definitely see myself going back for more - Ryan
