Snorkel with Seals

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.

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
