Description

Seal Snorkelling in Cape Town happens on the Atlantic side of the Cape Peninsula at Duiker Island, Hout Bay. This island is not known for any Great White shark activity as it is surrounded by cold water (8C – 15C), shallow kelp forests and home to relatively fewer seals (5000) than colonies elsewhere on the coast.

Trips dependant on weather and ocean conditions.


Where will we be visiting?

Duiker Island, Hout Bay, South Africa. This small rocky island is home to 5000-10000 Cape Fur seals.

When is the best time to snorkel ?

  • Cape Town’s summer is best, from September until the end of May.
  • During the end of March and into April the seal pups start to swim and this is the best time for interactions
  • We are closed in winter from the 1st June till September due to the seals being less active.
  • Expeditions are weather dependent.
