Dive or snorkel with Cape fur seals

Oh wow! This is a really delightful experience.

There you are underwater minding your own business, eyeing the reef, the starfish, the sponges and all other sorts of marine life, when whoosh – you’re suddenly surrounded by seals.

Even if you’re not a diver, you can still experience these wonderfully playful animals as a snorkeller.

They come up to you and nudge you – wanna play? – or just show off their skills in an incredible display of ‘hydrobatics’, twisting and turning, dodging between your legs and flippers, or even occasionally making a mock charge.

Even if you’re not a diver, you can still experience these wonderfully playful animals as a snorkeller. Cape fur seals mooch about on the surface, basking in the sun, or getting ready as a group to make for deeper waters on a fishing expedition.

The place to do this? Partridge Point, False Bay in the Cape, where you’ll find 100s of them.
