Seal Island is situated off the coast of Hout Bay and has up to 75 000 seals visiting the island. The Cape Fur Seal is curious and playful, a real treat to watch up-close and personal.
Making our way
As we arrive on the shores of Hout Bay harbor, we board the private ferry which will be escorting us to the island. Along the way our personal guide will give you and your circle the history and facts about the island as well as some guidelines when diving with the seals.
The Cape Fur Seal is curious and playful by nature, but it should be taken into consideration that this is a wild animal with very sharp teeth.
Under the sea
The seals are quite acrobatic underneath the surface of the ocean, but on land, it’s the opposite.
You will be allowed to dive with the seals and witness their behavior up close and personal.
On arrival, you will receive diving equipment and a safety brief before entering the water. The seals are overjoyed to show you and your circle their latest tricks.
It’s not just the Cape Fur Seals that inhabit the island. Other wildlife like the African Penguin has been seen nesting on the island. Seven gill sharks have been spotted frequently around the Island and are known for being interactive with the shark cages used in diving.
When the sun goes down, we return home with the adrenaline still flowing throughout our bodies and the amazing moments captured in our minds forever. You will reminisce on the wildlife you have spotted, the moments you will never forget and the photos to prove you were there.
