Seal Snorkeling in Plettenberg Bay
- About 2 hours
Plett Seal Adventures offers you a once in a lifetime encounter with wild marine mammals in Plettenberg Bay.
Come and live a unique interaction with the highly social and curious Cape fur seals. We’ll take you on a 1.5-hour journey in which we’ll share the beauty of the ocean, the environment, the history of Plettenberg Bay and the Robberg and a memorable 30 min immersion with these fantastic playful creatures.
The boat and skipper are fully licensed. Owner Chris has 21-year diving and skippering experience in the bay, making him one of the longest serving. His experience over the years took him from East to West (Mozambique to Gabon) and from South to North (Cape Town to the Red Sea). In South Africa he was active in diving tourism and marine exploration in Umkomaas, Sodwana Bay and the Wild coast.
Plett Seal Adventures is dedicated to supporting research and conservation of the marine ecosystem. We are volunteering boat time for local ocean exploration. Our efforts have been recognised by the National SPCA “The 1997 Gold medal in Bravery for saving a baby dolphin”.
We are actively involved in the social-economic uplift of the community in the Pondoland, on the Wild Coast.
We want to share our passion for the ocean and its creatures with you! Plett Seal Adventures provides intimate marine wildlife experiences for everyone. From the first email to the departing handshake, we aim to give honest advice and thorough planning to provide you with an unforgettable journey.
Trips are dependent on weather and ocean conditions. We aim to inform snorkelers 24 hours in advance of trip cancellations. However, we reserve the right to cancel trips with shorter notice in case of severe or sudden detrimental changes in the weather conditions. Your safety is our priority. We issue full refunds or the option to rebook.
The scene for your seal snorkeling adventure is set at the foot of the Robberg Peninsula in the Robberg Nature Reserve and Marine Protected Area. Robberg Nature Reserve is a rocky peninsula with trails and the Stone Age Nelson Bay Caves. This area is home to a Cape Fur Seal colony of about 6000.
