Join the longest operating Seal Snorkeling team in Cape Town at their comfortable Snorkel Centre for a unique marine wildlife adventure! Arrive at the Snorkel Centre to sign in, be sized for your equipment and enjoy refreshments and the souvenir shop before getting into your wetsuit and listening to an educational and safety briefing by one of the Marine Guides.

Enjoy an optional scenic 40-minute round-trip boat ride to Seal Island. Resume your tour via the world-famous Chapman's Peak Drive.

The guides were wonderful and very knowledgeable about the landmarks and the wildlife! The marine tour got postponed two days due to rough seas but it was well worth it! I also got the transport to and from my hostel, which was fantastic and right on time, so it took away all the stress about getting to each tour
The Kayaking is very fun to do with friends or family and a great way to spend some time seeing the views from the bay and if you are lucky seeing dolphins up close.
Real bucket list activity. Amazing interaction with an actual wild animal. Beautiful day and ocean conditions and real professional team. Definitely recommend
Great service and friendly, safe atmosphere! Would have wished for some more information on seal life and behaviour.
The tour guide, Armand was exceptional, very friendly and welcoming
