Meet the oceans friendly creatures

Plunge into the cool Atlantic ocean and snorkel with hundreds of playful Cape Fur Seals. If you love seals and the ocean, this is the best thing to do in Cape Town. Cape Fur Seals occur naturally on islands around the southern African coast and are found nowhere else in the world.

Duiker Island in Hout Bay is home to about 7,000 Seals and lies within the Karbonkelberg marine protected area, part of Table Mountain National Park. These Cape Fur seals are not fed or trained; they behave naturally and interact with snorkelers on their own terms. Seal Snorkelers can always see seals in the water and there are no sharks present. This is a wildlife adventure that brings you right next to playful and inquisitive wild animals in their natural habitat.

You must be a confident swimmer and our Skippers will be able to help you with any questions. All gear and equipment is provided on the day and trips happen twice a day, in the morning and afternoon, but are subject to weather conditions.

What an awesome afternoon snorkeling with the Seals. They were amazing to watch and we absolutely loved being in the sea with them. Something we'll never forget! Thanks Captain Jacks
