Combo of Snorkel with Seals and Parapax Tandem Paragliding Flights

Cape Town

Activity Description

Special rate of R450 per person (50% OFF) is only valid until 30 Nov 2021.

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

We had a great time seal snorkelling. Was the right amount of time in the water, any longer would have been too much. It was nice to get back on board the boat to some hot chocolate and biscuits supplied by the team. Seals were very inquisitive and swim up to you, take a look, and then swim off again. - Emma Westley


We had such a fantastic experience. Despite it being cold, it wasn't that bad once we were in the water and the crew had warm water for us on the boat afterwards. The seals were super playful and it was incredible being able to see them under the water in their natural habitat. The crew were very friendly and very attentive. We will definitely come back again! - Shanna Swart


Such an amazing experience. I felt so comfortable with the staff's professionalism and knowledge. Had so much fun and learned to love an animal that I didn't think I would. ? - Lee-Ann Sauerman


Was een van my beste expierances ooit om saam die seals te swem. Water was perfek, son het lekker geskyn en geen wind. Kon nie vir beter kondisies gevra het nie. Die staff en skipper is die vriendlikste mense en laat jou so welkom en veilig voel op boot en in die water. Sal beslis weer dit kom doen. Dankie Bucket List Cape Town. - Gerhard Coetzee

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! Always wear comfortable running shoes
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!
