Snorkel with Seals

Cape Town

Activity Description

1 of the TOP 10 Cape Town Outdoor Experiences.

Let Cape Town Bucket List take you on a once in a lifetime Cape Town adventure to snorkel with the ocean’s friendliest creatures, the Cape Fur seal.

Snorkeling is a great way to observe our beautiful underwater life without all the extensive training and complicated equipment required for scuba diving.

We will provide the wetsuit, mask, snorkel and fins as well as a short training session to make sure you are comfortable with the mask and snorkel.

Not keen to get in the water but would like to come and watch your friends and family snorkel? You’re more than welcome to join on the boat at an additional cost.

Customer Reviews

Great company!! - Nimrod geffen

I thought the experience from start to finish was excellent. I felt that the staff was very welcoming and prepared. After snorkeling, I enjoyed the hot chocolate and cookies, it was a nice touch. To be honest, there is nothing that I could complain about, it was a great experience overall. Thank you! - Colleen Morrison

Great day out. Friendly and experienced team. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks all - James DICKINSON

An absolutely wonderful experience. Very nice crew. The boat ride is very short, so even notoriously sea-sick people like me didn't get sick. The wet-suits are very warm - even 11.5 C water was perfectly bearable in them. Plus the crew brings warm water to pour into your wet suit if you get cold, so halfway through the snorkel one can warm up again. Absolutely magical seal sightings, I will do this again. - Nina Hobbhahn

It was awesome! We saw so many seals, some of them swimming underneath us just looking up at us with their cute eyes! On the way back we saw tousands of dolphins. The wetsuit is really thick and keeps you quite warm, but it is still very, very cold! - Ina Brenk
