Get to know Untouched Adventures
Untouched Adventures' name derives from their pioneering passion. The owners and founders are dedicated to exploring new territories and opening it up for others to experience something that was earlier “untouchable”.
It all started in 2003. Marthinus was sitting on the beach, praying for direction in his life and career. While praying, he stuck his hands into the sand and found a plastic scuba diving toy buried below. Instead of pollution or a forgetful kid, Marthinus saw his future in this prop.
Shortly afterward, he splashed this idea in Jeffrey’s Bay where he opened a scuba diving school. In 2009, he made a move to the beautiful Tsitsikamma. There, additional adventures were added to his repertoire – including snorkeling and the very popular kayak and lilo adventure.
The latter has evolved over the years from simply kayaking to kayaking and tubing and then to the use of lilos – a brilliant idea from his then new wife, Jenna – proving why he needed a female in the fun force. This lilo “lightbulb moment” has led to a unique activity since these fantastic floaters grant us access to a deeper section of the gorge, unreachable by kayaks.
During the early days, the company was very much a two-man show. Although Jenna was stationed on shore, she was swimming in the administrative tasks of taking bookings, answering phone calls and handing out gear to their excited customers.
Marthinus found himself in deep waters – literally! – leading scuba diving, snorkeling and kayaking trips. Those were adventurous days with little sleep, but we managed to keep our heads above the water. Since then, we have grown significantly and today we boast a terrific team with great guides.

Guides were very friendly and concerned. Wet suits should be included in the price.
Really nice staff and we had a great time!
Enzo and Stan are the best: told us a lot about the environment, had a lot of knowledge. Brought it on in a funny, good way!!
The equipment available for use is tatty. Given that you pay extra for booties, they are not in good shape. One days rental covers the cost of a new pair. Wetsuits & helmets need to be more thoroughly cleaned with soap, one can smell the perspiration. Some life jackets are in poor shape too.
The instructors where friendly, knows al lot about the environment and bring a lot of fun
