About the tour

The Penguin colony at Boulders Beach is usually easy to reach. But believe it or not, searching for cellphone reception can be a challenge here. Join me as I explore the False Bay coastline in search of the endangered African Penguin, and good signal! Perhaps a kayak is the best way...
