Cape Town Shark Warrior Adventures

This ocean adventure centre offers clients a range of exciting ocean adventures while directly contributing toward marine conservation! Shark Warrior Adventures is a new and exciting adventure-based, responsible tourism initiative borne of the non-profit organisation, AfriOceans Conservation Alliance.

Situated on a picturesque beachfront location at Seaforth Beach in Simon’s Town amid the ecologically diverse Table Mountain National Parks Boulders precinct, the Centre offers guided sea kayak safaris (which we have tried and tested, and absolutely recommend!), snorkel safaris and Stand Up Paddling (SUP) excursions. The center conducts its safaris within a ‘No Take Area’ of the TMNP MPA (Marine Protected Area).

Boulders Beach attracts up to 650 000 visitors per annum, most of which come to see the endangered African Penguin; and Shark Warrior Adventures offers a unique way to experience these iconic sea birds whether from a sea kayak, a SUP or while snorkelling through the magical kelp forests, which are home to an amazing rage of endemic small shark and protected fish species, dolphins, whales and other sea birds.

Description

Each ocean safari is led by fully trained and accredited guides who have grown up on the South African coast and surrounds, thereby being able to impart a wealth of knowledge during each one or two-hour long safari excursion. Terry, Head of Education at AfriOceans & one of the guides, even put in a good word with his sea-creature-connections before our kayak safari excursion, and we were fortunate enough to see mother and calf southern right whales! Truly magical!

Importantly, as a self-funding initiative, a percentage of all trip fees go back into marine conservation projects run by AfriOceans Conservation Alliance. These include the “Swim Like A Shark” programme, which saves lives while teaching underprivileged children how to swim and at the same time nurturing the next generation of ocean guardians.

Shark Warrior Adventures is perfectly situated: the Table Mountain National Parks Boulders precinct, of which Seaforth is an important part, attracts up to 650 000 visitors per annum. Most visitors come to see the endangered African Penguin and now Shark Warrior Adventures offers a unique way to experience these iconic sea birds whether from a sea kayak, a SUP or while snorkelling through the magical kelp forests, which are home to an amazing rage of endemic small shark and protected fish species, dolphins, whales and other sea birds rarely seen elsewhere.

The Centre is the brainchild of three ardent marine conservationists; Lesley Rochat (aka the Shark Warrior, Founder and CEO of AfriOceans), marine educationist Terry Corr (Head of Education at AfriOceans), and conservation journalist and author Jon Monsoon. The three recognised a gap in the ecotourism market in the Seaforth area, which until now had no responsible tourism centres despite attracting thousands of tourists to the area annually.

“Our aim is to actively influence people from all walks of life to become proactive guardians of Nature through informative and transformative human-nature experiences,” says Terry Corr.

Your ocean safari ensures that you will gain insight into the myriad sea creatures that call the immediate ocean environment home, you can catch-up on the latest marine conservation news over a coffee, hire equipment, or simply enjoy the sights and sounds of a healthy sea environment, free from the maddening crowds.

Seaforth offers safe, largely wind-free, direct access to the beach and ocean with well-kept lawn area, clean ablutions and safe, plentiful parking.
