Snorkel with Seals

Cape Town

Activity Description

Special rate of R450 per person (50% OFF) is only valid until 30 Nov 2021.

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

We had a wonderful time in the sea. It was very professionally done, with some lovely touches such as the hot chocolate and biscuit and the hot water poured into our wetsuits. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone :) - Lydia Darby

Absolutely wonderful experience! Of the absolute best things you can do in Cape Town. The guides are knowledgeable and keep you excited! They also forewarn you on what to expect so there are no surprises in the water. The seals are completely adorable and super playful! Had the best time. - Eden Theron

This was one of the best experiences ever. Everything was so great from the minute that I arrived to when I left. Special shout out to the instructor Johan and his team, you guys really made everyone feel so welcome and comfortable throughout the trip.
