Cape Point Day Tour
Join a local marine biologist for an experience off the beaten track - exploring places you never knew existed!
Life is about experiences. Make your Cape Town experience unique by getting in touch with the natural beauty of the Mother City’s wilderness.
Guided by a local marine biologist you’ll learn to see the small stuff, not sweat it. Your day tour will take you to the regular spots, plus a few places out of the ordinary.
RockHopper Tours shows you the Cape through the eyes of a biologist.
“Was great to explore the entire Cape Point national park rather than just the standard crowded tourist route. It’s a shame as mind you actually this is quite a massive park, so I was shown some really beautiful and different places with often not a soul to be seen whilst you adventure along both African coastlines!”
“Really loved this tour. We avoided the long queues and ‘chased the sun’ around Cape Point. Justin made the tour fun and informative with his knowledge of the marine world and was flexible with the tour around tides and the weather so that we could explore some rock pools. I was recommended it by a friend and just loved it!”
“I’ve spent a lot of years in Cape Town and have visited parts of the Cape peninsula before, but during my tour with RockHopper Tours, I discovered new spots along the coast I didn’t even know were there! We ended up in several stunning coastal locations without any other people around, looking for life in the rockpools, snorkeling, spotting larger marine life out to sea..”
