The ride on the boat was fun, as the closer we got to Seal Island, there were more waves, which made the ride more fun as the waves beat against the boat. There is plenty on seating inside and on the front deck of the boat. You should sit at the front deck for the best view of Seal Island,... More

Quick trip to the stinky seals was a lovely end of the day treat. Good value for money and we got very close to the seals. Bar on the boat was a great plus too

We couldn't believe how cheap it was to go on the boat ride. It was lovely to be out on board the boat and see the Sentinel, the Hout Bay harbour disappear around the corner to get to Seal Island. Took lots of pictures, loved it and recommend it highly!

My fiancé and I were browsing the market and waiting until lunch time, when we came across this charter company. The boat trip takes you out of Hout Bay along the side of The Sentinal hill and stops at Seal Island and continues on around duiker point to the Shipwreck. The trip lasts one hour and I felt it was... More
