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 R400 per person.

Customer Reviews

We had a fabulous time snorkeling with the seals. They were all around us! The staff was wonderful and we felt safe and comfortable the whole time. Would definitely recommend! - James Mathews


most fun and exciting activity we've done in Cape Town, highly recommend. Takes some time to adjust and brave the cold water but it's worth it. - Charlie


What an amazing experience me and my family had Mum dad and the kids Dad being 51 !!! Thanks to the amazing team that made it happen, it was extremly professional done from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, all we needed to do was pitch up all the equipment was there and in perfect order, the guides made us feel safe throughout and honestly gave us an experience non of us will ever forget and for an absolute bargain of a price. Make a day of it and visit the market 2 min down the road after great food and Music great way to end the day. - Khurt Slight


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!

Customer Reviews

One of the most exhilarating and unique ways to see Cape Town. The team at Parapax Tandem Paragliding were professional, knowledgeable and made the entire experience that much more fun. Timing is everything - we managed to choose one of the finest days in Cape Town in November, which meant that we were in the air for approximately 10-12 minutes. Definitely would recommend this experience! - Yushavia Ramlall


It was such a breath taking experience and the professionalism, skill and welcoming attitude of my pilot was second to known. Will definitely be recommending it to others. - Nkosinathi Nzama


Had an amazing time paragliding! I was nervous at first, but when you walk off the mountain, the wind takes you very calmly and smoothly. I was thinking more like skydiving where you plummet and then it opens, but it was a very nice, calm ride! It lasted about 10 minutes. Time varies based on the wind conditions. My guide was great. He said he had done 55,000 rides. He made me feel relaxed and comfortable the whole time. Just be patient with the timing. Our reservation was for 10am, but the guide texted me that we couldn't fly yet due to the wind, but he stayed in contact with me all day and we ended up flying at 230. Would highly recommend! - Erika Gagliardi


I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and I would do it again and again. I have told a lot of my friends to try it out and I am glad my experience sparked an interest in others. Honestly worth every penny! - Keletso Ledwaba


Absolutely a must do when in Cape Town. They were great! I even went back for a second round with more friends. - Rob Kayce
