Snorkel With Seals

Escape the crowded beaches on a hot summer’s day in Cape Town for a completely unique experience… Soak up the sun’s warm rays as you head out on the boat to spend an afternoon snorkelling amongst playful Cape Fur seals. You’ll be enchanted by the seals’ comic antics and friendly curiosity, all the while exploring the array of colourful anemones, goggle-eyed fish and hypnotic swathes of kelp. An afternoon of sunshine, salt water and seals: there’s nothing like it – a chance not to miss! Perfect for beginner snorkelers or advanced SCUBA divers.
