Snorkel with Seals

Cape Town

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 R550 per person.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful experience. The team was obviously very knowledgeable and made sure everyone had a great time and was safe. The seals were adorable. Would highly recommend. - Franciska Shaw


Absolutely amazing!! I was a bit nervous because I thought it would need some sort of advanced swimming but really as long as you are comfortable in water then you're good to go. The guides were very helpful and friendly. The area is so full of seals you spend the entire hour seeing them. An unforgettable experience - Miss Nkoana


From booking our session to the end of the experience the service was great. The diving guide, skipper and assistants were very informative and helpful, answering all our questions. I was nervous at first but after 2 seconds in the water it was so peaceful yet exciting to me swimming around all the seals. You do get cold in the water, but all you do is swim back to boat and you get warm water poured down your suit which is the best feeling ever! It feels like a warm hug. I highly recommend hiring a go pro, because the footage we got was amazing. After the session ends and everyone's back on the boat, you are quite cold. Hot chocolate and cookies are the two things you desire the most in that moment, and it's so great that you get both offered to you on the boat! I would recommend everyone going snorkeling with seals at least once in their lives. I intend purchasing a snorkeling kit for myself this summer! - Nazeefah Alli X2


We had an amazing time! The crew was very knowledgeable and helpful! Thank you very much for the awesome experience!! - Kay Richards


Incredible experience!!! - Lakshmi Bose
