Adventure trip

Storms River Mouth

Activity Description

With this four hour Extended Kayak and Lilo trip you will get to explore deeper into the hidden world of the Storms River gorge with long, bottomless pools, deep caves and ancient forests with nothing but the quiet noises of nature around you.

We will equip you with a uniquely designed Anvil which is a combination of the kayak and lilo. But don’t let the name fool you; they are easy to paddle but you do need to be fit and strong be able to carry the Anvils over rocks, but the beauty is well worth the hard work!

We start at our shop just above the small harbor inside the National Park, here you will meet your guides and receive all your gear. Please leave valuables in your vehicle, we do provide crates to store change of clothes. After a briefing we depart with two experienced guides leading the trip. We starts with a hike through the forest and over the famous suspension bridge where our Kayaks will be waiting for us. Here we continue the adventure on the normal Kayak and Lilo route. where we normally turn around with the Lilo’s you will go deeper into the gorge equipped with our Anvil boats.

The Anvil is a new generation hydro speed and making it ideal for technical river running. With this experience you will get to see more of the Storms River Gorge and enjoy the beautiful ravine with its awe experience and scenery that you will never forget.

Customer Reviews

We had a very pleasant trip through the gorge of Storms River Mouth. We took the long one. The guides were great and very helpfull they even bothered to taken pictures for us. I recommend this trip for anyone that likes to be in and around the water en does not have any problem with a little climbing over rocks. - Edmond

Great Tour with Romeo, Dwayne and his young colleague, which name we unfortunately forgot. We had a really exchisting adventure tour and even saw an Otter. The ride with the double kajak back over the (nearly) open ocean was thrillig. Would recommend, if you want a crazy tour! - Johannes

Amazing experience and equally amazing guides. Highly recommend - Michelle

We had a fantastic time! We could not say enough about Franco & Kurt! They truly made the experience! It was absolutely beautiful. So many laughs and memories made. We would highly recommend booking this day trip. Ask for Franco and Kurt you will not be disappointed. Thank you for contributing to a wonderful holiday in South Africa! We will definitely be back! - Julie

Was so excited to book this adventure and at the last minute switched from the shorter to longer version. I am so happy that I did, while the short version is absolutely beautiful and with fun guides. The longer version gives you a thrilling bouldering adventure through the ravine to reach the final swim which is absolutely amazing, and I would have been sad to have stopped when we did. That guides were very experienced and knew what they were doing but were also easy going and fun. I went on an overcast day in January with all the other days having been extremely warm but ours slightly chilly, and with that I can confirm- I wouldn't have needed a wetsuit for the short version, so so happy I had one for the long version. I had my cell phone with me in the dry bag and it was so easy to take in and out with ease, and not get wet although a GoPro would have captured everything. Highly recommend as an adventure! - Jillian
