Any trip to Cape Town wouldn’t be complete without snorkeling with our world-famous Cape Fur Seals. They are also known as the African Fur Seal or Brown Fur Seal and can weigh anything from 100 kg to 300 kg.
What’s so great about snorkeling with seals you might ask? For one, they are considered the oceans’ friendliest creatures. There’s a reason why they are known as the puppies of the sea. They are graceful and inquisitive in the water and don’t mind being around humans. And two, there are more than 15 000 seals in and around Hout Bay, Cape Town, so you are guaranteed to see them on your tour.
While it’s great to view seals while on one of the many boat tours available in Cape Town, it’s even better to get up close and personal with them. And since you don’t need all the training and complex equipment needed for scuba diving, preparing for your excursion is quick and easy.
