Snorkel with Seals

Cape Town And Hout Bay

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 cost.

Customer Reviews

French Guests staying at the Salty Seagull, Stefanie and her mom, really enjoyed their experience snorkeling with seals. We will recommend this experience to all our guests going forward. - David White


Great service, nice people, quality equipment, safety instructions. Getting close to the seals is guaranteed. We would do it again. - Ole Bleil


I had a fabulous experience! All the staff went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect and I got the best experience possible; pointing out special moments while snorkelling, bringing myself and two other people to another location when they were off the clock, and helping with whatever I needed answered or help with. Thank you very much for a fabulous time! - Bronwyn Shaw


Great and fun team that takes good care of you, for instance by treating you a hot chocolate when you come out of the water. The seals were coming really close and it was a great experience! Would definitely recommend this little adventure! - Kristina Blanck


Nice experience and highly recommended. Unfortunately the visibility in the water was not great that day, but the staff took good care of us. - Claudia Seminara
