Seal Snorkeling and Paragliding

Combo of Snorkel with Seals and Parapax Tandem Paragliding Flights

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 R550 per person.

Customer Reviews

It was such an incredible experience! I wasn't as fit as I thought I was and struggled to stay afloat but one of the guys stay with me throughout our time in the water allowing me to grab the floating device with ease! Staff was super friendly. I can't wait to do this again. - Carla Du Toit


It was awesome, go here for a good experience. - Tim


Activity Description

Enjoy an exhilarating tandem paragliding flight from Signal hill or Lions head. It is by far probably one of the most exciting adventure sports in Cape Town.

No other activity would let you enjoy spectacular panoramas of the Table Mountain, the City Bowl with no windows to block your view! No matter how nervous you might feel before takeoff (or for some, even the very thought of paragliding), the experienced team will put you at ease.

Once you are in the air enjoy a birds eye view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Arrangements

ProviderPara-Pax Tandem Paragliding
DurationOpen Ended
WhenThis service is available all year round 7 days a week, weather dependent.
WhereWE ALWAYS MEET AT THE VERY END OF SIGNAL HILL ROAD, under the first thorn tree, on the take-off site, at the parking place, (NOT at the Lions head parking lot) when we are flying in Cape town. Meet our friendly Parapax staff (look for our orange branded t-shirts and red caps).
WeatherThis service is very weather dependent.
What to WearPlease bring sensible, good, closed shoes (running shoes/trainers/sneakers/takkies – whatever you like to call them). Mountain and hiking boots are even better. Any kind of sandal, Croc, flip flop, flopflip, or anything that flips or flops is NOT good. If you don’t have closed shoes, just tell us and we have every sized shoe with us (from little feet to BIGFOOT!). Clothing-wise, wear shorts if its hot, but generally Jeans and a T-shirt with a windbreaker is the best bet. We include everything needed for the flight (helmets and all flying equipment) as well as water, suntan lotion, snacks and refreshments. Naturally, it’s best is to drink lots of water and use that suntan lotion before arriving.
Things to BringSun-block (sunscreen) and hat (it’s often sunny and we don’t want you getting sunburned!) and drinking water!
Guests or SpectatorsSpectators can wait on the ground for the guests to return

Notes

We always meet at the very end of Signal hill drive, once you get to the parking area you will be welcomed by our take off manager Witness, signed up and briefed on the launch. Once you’re securely clipped in, all you need to do is take a few light steps before you’re flying! With an expert pilot behind you, you will feel just great!

Tandem paragliding gives you an amazing sense of freedom. Once in the air, most people are surprised at how relaxed they feel. You’ll sit comfortably upright (like on your sofa at home). You won’t feel like you’re sinking or falling at all, since you glide, nearly horizontally, through the air at around 40 km/hr.

In optimal weather conditions you even have the chance to fly the paraglider yourself! Your instructor will place his hands above yours to show you how to steer. It really is quite simple and really, really fun! This, like the aerobatics before landing, are completely optional of course!

Customer Reviews

Fantastic. I was about to have my 60th birthday whilst on holiday from the UK and decided to have a go whilst I watched others taking flights. It was obvious that they were professional in what they were doing and safety was everything, this gave me confidence to book a flight. My tandem pilot (Andre I believe) was brilliant and made the experience really cool. I paid extra for the photographs which is absolutely worth it I promise you. If like me you don't fancy jumping from an airplane or bungee jumping but want a taste of something similar then pluck up courage and put your trust in these guys, you'll love it. Thank you to the Parapax team. - Mike Thomas


We really had the most wonderful experience. The whole process from beginning to end was controlled efficiently! Highly recommend this operation to all who want to enjoy this experience. - Nigel Gevisser


I loved it, even though the weather wasn't great. Funny guides that made you feel safe. - Arno


These guys are fantastic. The ride was simply amazing. The pilots are friendly and make you feel safe while keeping things light-hearted and funny. You can tell that they love what they do. I highly recommend booking with parapax. You will not regret it. - Casey Donnelly


Awesome ! Thank you - Morad bouguerra
