There are so many ways to experience beautiful Cape Town, one of the most magical has to be from the sea itself. Whether you are kayaking, on a SUP (stand up paddle), on a boat or surfing, the view from the other side is breathtaking.

The Atlantic Ocean is home to sea creatures big and small, and if you’re lucky enough to come across a pod of dolphins, you get to indulge your sealegs and become one with them, until they leave you in their foam.

This weekend, the dream of kayaking with dolphins came true for Lara Hattingh who found herself smack bang in the centre of a huge pod.

“They have accepted us into the hurrd ? @nixtography” – she wrote on her Instagram feed on Sunday.
