Seal snorkeling is among one of the best outdoor experiences Cape Town has to offer, along with hiking Table Mountain; attending a Kirstenbosch Summer Concert; having a picnic on Signal Hill; wine tasting at Groot Constantia and many others.

If you’re from out of town and it’s your first time visiting beautiful Cape Town then make the most of your stay by ticking off as many Cape Town Bucket List experiences as possible - starting with seal snorkeling in Hout Bay.

Seal snorkeling is ideal if you’re an adventurer at heart and wish to explore the ocean without diving great depths. If you love seals then you’ll be pleased at how curious and friendly they are, some of them swim so close to you that you could even reach out and pet one (please don’t though, they’re still wild animals). Look, learn and appreciate from a safe and respectable distance.

By now you’re probably wondering about sharks. Yes, Cape Town may be notorious for her great whites but none have been spotted in the bay. They’re mostly far out at sea, and they tend to stay away from the snorkeling location - they have never spotted a shark while snorkeling with the seals.

How it works:
Introductions and briefing upon arrival.
Wetsuit fitting and gear check.
Short training session.
Then you’ll go snorkeling and see the seals!

There will be hot drinks and snacks onboard on the way back.
