Eco-Friendly E-Kayaking

The two-hour Benguela Cove E-Kayak Tour at Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is an eco-friendly way to explore the protected area of the Bot River Lagoon, Hermanus, Western Cape. E-kayaks are powered by electric motors, which produce no emissions and have a minimal impact on the environment. This allows visitors to explore the lagoon without disturbing the natural habitat or wildlife in the area. E-kayaks are quiet and do not disturb the peace and tranquility of the surrounding area. Eco-Friendly E-Kayaking at Bemguela Cove is a fun and convenient way to explore the waterways and enjoy the beauty of nature while still being able to cover larger distances with less effort.

E-kayaking, also known as electric kayaking (self-propelled kayak) involves the use of an electric motor to propel the kayak through the water. This can be helpful for individuals who may have difficulty paddling for long periods of time, or for those who want to cover more distance without becoming fatigued. E-kayaks typically have a small motor attached to the kayak that is powered by a rechargeable battery. The motor can be controlled using a throttle or a remote control, allowing the paddler to easily adjust their speed and direction while on the water. E-kayaking can provide a more relaxing and enjoyable experience for some individuals, as it reduces the physical exertion required to paddle a traditional kayak.
