Cape Town is known for its fascinating history, beautiful landscape, and indigenous wildlife, so why not take part in an experience which offers a chance to witness one of its friendliest animals in their natural habitat; snorkelling with the Cape Fur Seal!
The experience begins on arrival at the harbour where you'll be introduced to the team, then go over a quick safety briefing and wetsuit fitting to ensure you're properly kitted out for your aquatic adventure. The instructors will also give you a short training session using the mask and snorkel, just to make sure you're confident in the water. Once prepped you'll board the boat and head out to sea, dropping anchor in a prime seal spotting location! Snorkelling is a great activity to take part in if you’re looking to experience the incredible wildlife and sea creatures that live below the water’s surface, without having to complete any diving courses. After a couple hours of snorkelling excitement your group will board the boat once more and finish up with hot drinks and snacks.
The 'Snorkel With Seals' experience in Cape Town is great fun for tourists and locals alike, and makes a unique gift for animal lovers. Enjoy!

Seals are known to be one of the sweetest animals in the sea, so that's why we were keen to find out a little more about our wonderful partner, Seal Adventures, and their incredible wildlife experiences offered within Cape Town. Have a read through to find out some important and interesting information about them!
1. Please tell us, how did Seal Adventures begin?
It all started with two brothers with a passion for adventure and Mother Nature. The rest is history! Our main vision is to let others experience the beauty of the Cape Town oceans.
2. As you’ve mentioned seals are extremely interactive and curious with humans, how did you come to realise this?
Both of us have a love for scuba diving and on a previous scuba diving excursion we came to realize that seals are very curious and love to interact with humans. That being said – they are adorable too!
3. Has there ever been a funny moment with either humans or seals that you’d like to share with us?
It was on a trip of ours where one of our clients decided to drift on the water facing upward. All of a sudden a pup (baby seal) jumped onto the client’s tummy to lay on his chest. This was truly magical to witness!
4. What words of advice would you give to someone who is slightly apprehensive of this experience?
Once you start to focus on the beauty of Mother Nature and how spectacular it is under the water – you simply forget you fears.
5. What three words would you use to describe your snorkelling with seals experience?
6. Finally, are there any exciting plans for the future of Seal Adventures that you’d like to mention?
Yes we do! Watch this space 😉
Thank you, Seal Adventures, for finding the time to complete our partner interview. We love finding out more about our partners especially when they involve adorable animals! We really enjoyed reading your funny moment and that apprehensive passengers have no need to worry when entering the sea. Keep us updated with your exciting plans for the future, we'd love to find out more.
