"Our favourite!" The 2 hour Storms River Kayak & Lilo Adventure is our most popular adventure activity in Tsitsikamma National Park! If you are keen to explore deeper into the Storms River Gorge in Tsitsikamma, and experience the long, deep, quiet pools, then the Kayak and Lilo trip is for you! We paddle from the Harbour next to the small beach across the ocean, then under the Suspension Bridge and up the beautiful Storms River Mouth. Please note that if the sea is rough, you have to hike to the Suspension Bridge (along a boardwalked trail), where we then hike along the river from the suspension bridge up to the jetty to where you then get on onto your kayaks. This 80m hike is over rocks and difficult terrain. PADDLE UP THE STORMS RIVER MOUTH This is where the true Kayaking adventure begins - paddling the Storms River, the pinnacle of Tsitsikamma National Park. After waving to all the tourists photographing you from the Suspension Bridge, we continue the kayak trip up the Stormsrivier. We paddle right into the bats cave and spend time gazing up at the magnificent and spectacular cliffs all around us, all from the comfort of our double sit-on-top kayaks. LILO DEEPER UP THE STORMS RIVER GORGE At the low-water point (where the 1 hour kayak trip turns around) we disembark our kayaks and we jump on our unique Lilo's. (a Lilo is an inflatable mattress that we’ve had specially made for this trip). From here we walk and float over a short section of rocks and simply wade deeper up the river on the Lilo's. What a stunning view it is, laying on a Lilo at water level, and gazing up to cliffs that touch the sky! At reaching a certain point, we simply turn our Lilo’s around and float back down river to our Kayaks! CLIFF JUMPING For the young, brave and adventurous (and the young, brave and adventurous at heart!) we take the opportunity up Storms River to leap off overhangs in the cliff walls into deep pools in the gorge. The cliff jumping adds a good dose of adrenaline for your trip back, as well as some good laughs, friendly encouragement and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities to brag to all your buddies when you get home. Cliff Jumping is not compulsory - you can simply enjoy the spectacle as you leisurely float in the long pools below. We've had kids as young as 6 and grandparents (as old as grandparents!) take the leap and enjoy the Lilo-ing, so we can truly say that this activity can be enjoyed by the whole family! The Lilo trip is our most popular and most recommended trip by local and international tourists, so be sure not to miss out on this unique adventure! Discover a new adventure activitiy in Storms River and experience nature and adventure at its best! ACTIVITY BREAKDOWN When the ocean is safe to kayak over the trip will involve in total: 10 minutes briefing, 20-30 minutes of ocean kayaking, 30-40 minutes of river kayaking, 40 minutes on Lilo and +/- 20 minutes Cliff Jumping, swimming and some time in between of just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view.
