My wife and I had a wonderful time snorkeling with seals. Swimming side by side with these beautiful creatures is an indescribable experience. Steve and his team did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed during our three hour excursion.

I was really excited at the prospect of swimming with the seals, and the least I can say is that the experience was up to my expectations. We booked our seal snorkeling trip in March 2014. We were welcomed by a very friendly and professionnal team whom, after kitting us with vests, wetsuits, boots and gloves (all the equipment was... More

We would highly recommend snorkeling with seals through Animal Ocean. Our two guides were informative and friendly, making us both feel very comfortable during our first time snorkeling.  The seals were also amazing—playful, friendly, and everywhere. Being surrounded by seals, diving and spinning around you, was such an incredible experience.   Additional notes: we would definitely recommend renting a GoPro... More

What a great experience! The crew was very Nice and relaxed, although safety first...so everything was explained very well, before we plunged into the water. The boattrip was wonderfull. And of course to be in the ocean with so many seals swimming and jumping around you at distance of only a few centimeters.... I really loved it! We swam around... More

I highly recommend this experience. From the moment I enquired about the experience right up to the day itself i was treated with professionalism. We had never been to South Africa before and we took part in lots of great experiences but snorkelling with the seals was top of the list and excellent value for money. Thank you
