TINTSWALO Boulders has introduced an experience for guests to explore the fascinating underwater world of False Bay where renowned cinematographer Craig Foster filmed My Octopus Teacher.
The three-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 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 two-hour kayaking excursion in single or two-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.
Located en route to Cape Point, Tintswalo Boulders has a rooftop pool overlooking the ocean and a garden pathway that leads to the Boulders Beach boardwalk and the entrance to the SANParks penguin viewing area. 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.
Package rate for SA residents: R5250 per person sharing including two nights’ accommodation, coffees and teas, breakfast daily, one brunch, one lunch, one dinner and two water-based activities, as well as afternoon snacks on day one, and canapés and a sunset cocktail on day two.
