Customer Reviews

Wonderful experience, great staff, beautiful view - Maya Friedrich

Amazing ...Everything from start to finish ... We were so looked after and saw so may seals ..Would recommend this as a must do activitie whilst in cape town - Deb Williams

We was a family of 4, 2 of us did the ride along snorkel viewing and the other 2 snorkel with the seals. It was a really good trip and it was really fantastic to come so Close to the seals :) - Isabelle

We went seal snorkeling with Bucketlist as part of our research trip for an animated film that we are currently working on. So we had a great dose of fun and inspiration for our work. Bucketlist was so professional in assisting us; from making bookings to finally getting into the boat on the day. Our team had an incredible time and some of them mentioned that they will definitely do it again on their own. Thanks! - Triggerfish Animation

Massively impressed with Tjaart and Johan's team. Had the time of our lives which was what we expected. Their knowledge of the area is second to none . Their ability to make you feel calm and help the one's through the experience that might have second thoughts when getting on the boat or in the water, was amazing. The enjoyment of the experience massively out weighs the butterflies and/or the possible fear you might have. Please book with them and you wont regret it. Our seal of approval ;) - Hendro Puchert
