Customer Reviews

This experience was amazing and one of a kind! The staff was friendly and had everything set up and ready to go. It is a must-do! - Micaela A Hernandez

Excellent service! We had all the equipment to keep ourselves warm even in the cold waters of Hout Bay. Seals are very friendly and we had a great time swimming with them. - Mariana Rocca

I had a really enjoyable trip. The staff were incredibly friendly and made the trip hassle-free and very exciting. I saw lots of seals very close and the go pro enabled me to capture this memory well. I would thoroughly recommend this trip. - Katie Holloway

What an amazing experience snorkelling with the seals in Hout Bay. The staff did a good job explaining and giving safety briefings. I didn't have any experience when it comes to snorkelling but that was not a problem at all and I felt safe at all times. Keep up the good work :) - Carina Søltoft Sørensen

The experience was awesome! All the crew were very nice, gently and well prepared and were always ready to help us and make us feel more confortable. All the equipment and the boat were very good and I really apreciate the snorkeling. It was an unforgettable morning. I would certainly recommend Cape Town Bucketlist to my friends! - FERNANDA QUINTANA ABEID
