Apex Shark Expeditions - Swimming with Seals

Close encounters with the Cape fur seals will be your holiday highlight when you snorkel with seals in Cape Town.

Apex Shark Expeditions’ trips depart from Hout Bay harbour or Simon’s Town to nearby seal colonies. On the boat ride you may also see dolphins, Southern Right Whales and a variety of marine birds.

In the water, graceful Cape fur seals dart and twirl as they frolic playfully and interact with you. They are inquisitive creatures that will come close to get a good look at you. Your guide, a zoologist, is on hand to tell you all about seal behaviour as well as that of other marine animals.

Although no snorkeling experience is required, you should be a confident swimmer and comfortable in open water.  Children over 8 - accompanied by an adult - are welcome.
