Snorkelling in South Africa - Fun Things To Do.

A snorkelling safari is not the kind of safari that comes to mind when you think of South Africa, but it should! Firstly, snorkelling is a fabulous family adventure. Unlike diving which requires arduous training, snorkelling has a low barrier to entry. As long as you are a competent and confident swimmer, you can sign on. Secondly, South African coastal waters harbour many diverse and exciting snorkelling sites; warm Indian Ocean magic around KwaZulu-Natal and cold Atlantic but warmly-wet-suited options near Cape Town.

Marine environments for snorkelling in South Africa range from the more familiar bright colours and caverns and caves of coral reefs to the other worldly beauty of golden kelp forests with their resident stingrays, octopus and shy sharks.

As with your typical South African safari, snorkelling in South Africa is bound to involve engaging with marine creatures in some way. Dolphins, penguins and even whales are sometimes spotted while snorkelling. Special excursions to Cape fur seal colonies facilitate a delightful swimming session with these curious and energetic animals and a real sense of connecting with nature.
