Flanking the western side of Plettenberg Bay is the stunning ridge of rock called the Robberg Peninsula, a nature reserve and marine protected area that is home to a large colony of Cape fur seals. Swimming with these lovable creatures is a sea-based adventure that the whole family can participate in – the only requirement is that you know how to swim. Experienced guides will be in the water with you to interpret behaviour (the fur seals, not yours!) and keep you safe.

Interacting with any wild animal can be a very moving experience, but especially with a creature that is as responsive and playful as the cape fur seal is. With their big heads, whiskers and large saucer eyes goggling at you under the water, cape fur seals have a slightly comical appearance like a creature from a Dr. Zeus story.

A 20 minute boat ride takes you to the swim site and the whole experience is made even more rewarding by the scenic beauty of the location- the sparkling blue bay, the distant Tsitsikama mountain range and the plunging cliffs of the Robberg Peninsula.
