There has recently been a  significant uptick in unprovoked seal attacks on divers in South Africa, so much so that as a company we feel it would be irresponsible to continue offering guided seal dives for the time being. Research into the cause of this is ongoing, but until the situation is resolved we have decided to go for the safer option and avoid seal colonies for the time being.

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.

“brilliant organisation and awesome diving!!!” Into the blue is a very well organised and professionally run dive shop...

I dived with Into the blue last week, and despite having an early meeting time was greeted by the staff with instant smiles and friendliness. Within 15 minutes the blond lady at reception had our whole groups paperwork sorted, gear packed, and introductions given.

There was a groupf of about 7 of us, and we all got to know eachother and the rest of the staff very well throughout the day. Everyone of the staff was friendly and happy to lend a helping hand, and they were very thorough and professional throughout the day.

The dive conditions didn't end up being so good, but the skipper GP was wise enough to call off the second dive for safety and we were sorted out back at the shop with rescheduling and refunds.

Very well done, and I would highly recommend for any divers visiting Cape town. I will be back to dive with Into the blue again!!!

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!
