We stopped in Hout Bay for a short break on the way to Cape Point. We went on one of the cruises to Seal Island. Fortunately, the scenery is so breathtaking that even a boat full of really obnoxious screaming people seems unimportant (we were just a handful of folks that were not with one LARGE group). The boat certainly gets good,close views of the seals and turns around so both sides could see the cuties. We also took a ton of shots of the dramatic cliffs, clouds, and amazing water colors. The trip was well worth the small fee for the boat.
Upon return, loads of folks from our boat stopped to enjoy the Cape Minstrels and the craft market, but if you are going around SA at all, you will see many markets with similar offerings.
