60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Join the Marine Biologists at Cape RADD for one of the best Simon's Town Seal Snorkelling experiences from Cape Town. We will join a boat ride for approximately 25-minutes along the Cape Peninsula to Seal Rock, which is a small hideout for resting seals. Here you will dive in and snorkel with the seals alongside expert field guides for an interactive experience in the ocean. We will remain close to the rock where the majority of the seals frolic in the water investigating and playing with the guests. The water is very shallow and the bottom is usually visible. This is a delightful opportunity to learn about the seals' behaviour and their role in the ecosystem. The entire excursion duration is approximately 2.5 to 3-hours.

3 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Boulders Beach Penguin Colony
After this adventurous activity, we proceed to Boulders Penguins Colony where we will take a walk on the boardwalk to view the African Penguins in their natural habitat. Here there are approximately 2500 African Penguins.
