Tintswalo Boulders has introduced an exciting Marine Exploration Adventure Experience for guests to explore the awesome underwater world of False Bay, where cinematographer Craig Foster filmed My Octopus Teacher.

The 3-day package includes a snorkelling safari in wetsuits through the kelp forests accompanied by a trained guide, guided kayaking in the sheltered bays of Simon’s Town, and ample opportunity to visit the penguins of Boulders Beach.

Two nights’ luxury accommodation with breakfast is included at Tintswalo at Boulders, the uniquely located beachfront villa that is surrounded by fynbos, with unobstructed views across the world-famous Boulders Beach penguin colony and the ocean.

Sea activities are guided by the Shark Warrior Adventure Centre and take place in the marine protected area of the Table Mountain National Park. Snorkellers will glide through the mystical kelp forests to encounter the mysterious life beneath the waves where fish and other marine life sway in the flow of the currents around the reefs.

A magical 2-hour kayaking excursion in single or 2-seater kayaks will include gentle paddling in the clear, turquoise sea and protected coves of Boulders Beach to watch the antics of the endangered African penguins and other seabirds.

The villa offers spacious living and dining areas, a central courtyard with a fire pit and generous terraces with sea views. The nine luxurious suites have en-suite bathrooms and are individually decorated and named after ships to pay homage to Simon’s Town maritime history.
