We did this trip with friends and Chloe and Simon looked after us from the kitting out of the equipment to the activities itself. The boat ride was a tad bumpy but a great experience and when we arrived was prepared ready to go. The seals were very inquisitive but kept a distance a great experience all round. Had a couple of flipper issues but sorted so I could continue. The video of the event was certainly better than mine lol too many cameras by me Thanks both will come and see you when we are back in CT.

Noranigg82 - Great Experience December, 2019

We went out snorkeling with the seals and the trip was really awesome. The equipment is in very good shape, the staff is super friendly and the boat is great! We were the only ones on the snorkel spot and had a fantastic time with the seals. So happy we booked with them and would 100% recommend it!!

It was amazing! The guides did a so good job and they even were able to make me feel really secure (because I was afraid to be in that deep water ;)) But I felt really relaxed and the seals were soo cute and curious! It was an amazing experience and I am so grateful for the beautiful memories <3 Also the ride on the boat from V&A to Hout Bay was fun! :)

The sealsnorkeling was great! They really came up close even if we kept a comfortable and respectable distance for the animals. The guides were awesome, respectable towards us and the nature/animals. Also a big thumbs up for the captain who knew a lot of information about dolphins, seals and other animals!
