Snorkel With Seals in Cape Town
- About 2 hours
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 cost. A R500.00 fee will be charged if you don't want to dive and just go on the boat for the trip.

The most incredible group of people I've had the opportunity to spend time with.
We went on a morning kayak tour around the bay where we were told about the history of Hout Bay, Chapmans Peak and various other fantastic sights. The tour ended by going under the harbour wall where there was no shortage of starfish and crystal clear, calm water.
We had booked to do the seal snorkeling after the kayak tour, which worked out perfectly because of how great their time slots are set up.
Once getting to seal island, and hopping into the water it was such a magical moment. You get to experience the life below from whole different perspective. It's almost unreal with how comfortable the guides make you feel swimming alongside the seals.
The water was 14 degrees C, but because of the wetsuit and the sheer excitement you don't even notice the temperature.
Once back out of the water we were greeted with hot chocolate, cookies and a splash of warm water whilst making our way back to land.
We had so much fun, and would recommend to anyone looking for an exciting day out to come here.
AMAZING Seal Snorkeling: go with Cape Town Bucket List.
As a worldwide traveler, I have lots of wildlife experience. The Cape Town Bucket List crew offered us a rich experience. They took us to swim and snorkel with sea lions in the best conditions. Surrounded by happy sea lions and playful cubs was heartbreaking. Go with these guys, don’t hesitate. Thank you Deon and all the crew.
I had an absolutely magical birthday weekend thanks to this wonderful team. They made sure the experience was one to remember, being so accommodating and knowledgeable and making sure we were comfortable the entire time. My friends and I had loads of fun - THANK YOU!
It was an amazing experience and we had loads of fun! Could not have asked for a better crew. Thanks guys!
Did this with my husband and good friend last weekend. It’s was an amazing experience. I was in two minds about doing this but I am so glad I did and would definitely do it again. All equipment is provided (wetsuits, booties, goggles etc) and the staff are very helpful. The hot chocolate at the end is a great touch to warm the fingers:)
