Customer Reviews

Amazing experience... Totally worth it. The childrens enjoy the swimming and talk about it days after. - Shlomi Heled

Very cool experience with professional guidance- high recommended - Stephan de Haas

We had a great outing with Offshore Adventures and swimming with the seals. It is about a 20 minute ride by boat from the beach to the island where the seals live. There were 10 of us on the boat and I think it holds a max of 12. We were fitted with wetsuits, fins, and snorkel gear. The equipment was in good shape. We spent about 25 minutes in the water with the seals. There is a 30 minute max limit in order to protect the seals from too much human exposure. We saw hundreds of seals sitting on the island and swim with dozens in the water. It was an amazing experience. An added plus was having the master diver shoot pictures and video with a go pro and then these were offered at no extra charge to each person. The staff all did a great job and I would recommend this adventure if you were going to be in the Plettenburg bay area. - Laura McSpadden Belle Isle

Great fun and something very different to do. Good guides who were informative and helped us a lot. Definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. Highly recommended. - Jason Taylor

We both loved this experience and were amazed with how curious and intrigued the seals were with us swimming with them. Care was taken to ensure the safety of the seals, which was really important to us. Really well lead and would highly recommend. - Mark Lowe
