Snorkelling with Seals Trip

When visiting Cape Town you cannot miss the adventure of swimming, snorkelling with the Cape Fur Seals. This must do adventure should definitely be on your list of adventures. The dive is very easy in only 1-5 meters of water in the safety of the kelp forest around Duiker Island Seal Colony in Hout Bay.

There has not been a Great White Shark spotted in this area where there are thousands of seals as this is protected by the kelp. Anyone can slip into the water to interact with the seals and when you are in the water you will have the joy of having dozens of seals competing for your attention. You will love this dive with the dogs of the sea!
