Hidden just off the coast of my hometown, Great Brak River, is a wreck of a floating dock that stranded here in 1902. I'll pack us some food and drinks with a traditional treat (breakfast/lunch depending on the tides) and we can walk to the wreck or even a bit further to Cave Bay if you'd like. I'll give you a short history of the wreck and the area, and we can go for a swim before heading back. It's a half day trip (up to 5 hours, if you are a quick walker it can be 3 - but I prefer to take it easy and enjoy every part of the hike). We can meet at the Glentana Parking area +/- 7km from the town centre in Great Brak River - pickup in Mosselbay/George is an additional R100 pp.
I'm the co-founder of Like A Local South Africa, myself and my husband Charl - a qualified adventure guide, and an all-round fun guy - host this experience together. We love the great outdoors, the ocean, food and making food, and spending time with people of all shapes, sizes, and guises. People and nature are our passions - and what better way to pursue these passions than taking others to explore the beautiful coast where I grew up and live.

We'll try to keep it local - and within your dietary requirements, please let us know if there are any!
The hike to the wreck and cave bay can best be described as a local hike - as only locals from the surrounding areas and frequent holiday-makers to the area know of it. It's not a registered hike (there are no signs etc) and it's quite rural. We'll cover a part of the Southern Cape coast, and a couple of rocky hills.
Bathing suit & towel if you want to swim
We have to take the tide into consideration so we will confirm the time as soon as you've booked and we had a look at the tide schedule. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
