Shark Explorers

DETAILS

Join Shark Explorers on a lively adventure to view the Cape Fur Seals in their natural habitat. These clowns of the sea will leave a smile imprinted on your face. The 10-minute boat ride will take you along the scenic and rugged coastline of the Cape to a local seal colony nestled on a small island. Once at the island you will be struck by the sheer number of seals that inhabit this hustling and bustling little rock.

The Shark Explorers team will introduce you to your surroundings and get you ready to witness the inquisitive seals dance and dash around you in a display of stamina and agility. Once you dip your mask below the surface, the world above will be forgotten as you interact with your new ocean-dwelling friends. Our experienced dive masters and skippers will provide you with all the support you need to have a wonderful outing and a memorable experience. No prior experience is required, and all equipment will be provided. This trip is fun for the whole family and is a must when visiting Cape Town!

*Please note that the above information is a guideline and can vary depending on shark behavior or environmental conditions.
