SNORKELING WITH SEALS Introduction

Are you looking for a fun activity to do, that won't break the bank?  Snorkeling with seals in Cape Town is a lot of fun, and very adventurous! These animals are like “underwater dogs”. While being very slow (and a bit grumpy) above the water, they transform into playful acrobats when they are in the water - in their element!

The most seal action is typically in the top 5 meters of the ocean, and they come right up to the surface to breath, means which that you can be part of the action while snorkeling. Seals come right up to you, look you in the face, blow bubbles, bark, and play! Sometimes, you can have hundreds of seals around you, making this a truly spectacular wildlife event to witness! If they're in the mood they become quite interactive, playing all around you. Certain times of the year there are puppies around as well, which are very cute.

Not a certified diver? No problem! You can join your scuba friends on their excursion - let them dive below while you snorkel on top. With this activity, you can be sure to have just as much fun as them!

Snorkeling with seals is one of those "must do" adventure activities in Cape Town. Coupled with a fun boat ride this is quite a thrill.

You need to be able to swim to take part in this activity, and the minimum age is 10 years old.

So glad I got certified with Into the Blue! - Getting certified...

has been on the top of my bucket list for years now, but I have never found the time to do it. I am an American but I was studying in Cape Town for a semester so some friends and I decided to take the plunge and sign up to get our open water cert. I cannot praise Into the Blue enough. What really makes this place incredible is the staff. They were helpful, professional, and fun. For many people, myself included, scuba diving is a completely new experience and having instructors that are helpful while keeping things fun made me more comfortable throughout the experience. As far logistics go, they provide all gear during the certification process and allow you to schedule all of your dives (OW and pool) on your own schedule. All I can say is the next time I am in Cape Town, I will definitely be paying Into the Blue a visit.

I recommend anyone that is nervous or thinking twice to do scuba diving, it is the best choice you can...

I grew up on the sea, always wondered how it must be into the deep blue sea. Then one day me and my wife decided to do an attempt to do scuba diving and I was quite nervous about going under water but thanks to the Into the blue crew and their patience and determination me and my wife found a new hobby and looking forward to go around the world and scuba dive all around the world. So from me and my wife we want to thank Cape Town, South Africa, Into the blue, for what we have experienced and thank you for opening a new world to us! I recommend anyone that is nervous or thinking twice to do scuba diving, it is the best choice you can ever make!
