Snorkel With Seals in Cape Town

  • About 3 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 R550 per person.

Had an excellent experience with this friendly, knowledgeable and helpful team. I went seal Snorkeling with my 12 year old daughter and the guys really looked out for her. She's a strong swimmer anyway but I felt confident that she was very safe. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

An amazing experience and definitely worth doing. The Captain of the boat as well as the Life Savers were not only very much aware about safety but also were well informed of the area and the seals. The equipment worked well especially the wet suits. I would go again

Had an awesome experience. Was a bit scared at the beginning but the friendly lifeguards assisted me throughout the entire experience. He was so kind he even took most of my picture so that I could concentrate more on enjoying myself. Will definitely recommend Cape Town Bucket list/Seal Snorkeling to all my friends.

We had an incredible experience with Cape Town Bucket List. Divers are friendly. We saw many seals swimming near us and we managed to capture many nice videos of them. A cup of warm chocolate were given to us at the end of our trip. Highly recommend!
