Customer Reviews

For me it was an opportunity of a lifetime. I had so much fun and it was a learning curve for me seeing that I have never used a snorkel or flippers to swim with. To the wonderful team that took us out, thank you very much. - Jan van Heerden

We came a family of 4. The staff was very welcoming. We got all our gear with no problem. You have all the facilities to change. Also, have lockers. After a short walk, we came to the boats. A couple of minutes ride and we came to the place. Had a great time swimming with the seals. They took plenty of pictures of us and the group. - Oz Mezer

Great fun! Amazing experience swimming with the seals. Remarkably cold though! - James McEwen

We had an absolutely amazing time swimming with the seals. The gentlemen who provided the service are incredibly knowledgeable, entertaining and made the whole activity wonderful. We cannot recommend them and this adventure highly enough! - Johan Bothma

Fantastic Day, lovely helpful guides, great quality equipment, fun boat journey to the seals and an extra bonus that our guide took photos/videos that we could access for free. Excellent value for money! - Lisa Williams
