“Once in a lifetime experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Our family had the highlight of our trip Swimming with the wild fur seals. We were really looked after by the company, after being fitted with all necessary wet suits and snorkels, we had a speed boat ride out to the colony of hundreds of seals. We then had 30 mins swimming right in amongst the seals. This is a real encounter and beats the shark baiting hands down. You must do this, 5 stars.

“Swimming with seals is so much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

This is an amazing experience! Especially with the great visibility we had in the water. It is only a short boat ride away and then you are already at the seal colony. The seals are not scared and come really close. Sometimes they come out of nowhere and scare the crap out of you! Next to that there is also some nice bottom life visible on clear days and lots of fishes swim around. And if you are lucky you will also see Elli the Elephant seal lying on the rocks or swimming about.
Definitely a must when passing Plettenberg Bay!

“Offshore adventures is awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

Offshore Adventures' seal swim is fantastic. Not only do you get the chance to swim with plenty adorable and playful Cape fur seal pups, you get to see the colony up close, too. It's also great to enjoy a snorkel in the turquoise water alongside the Robberg peninsula. The Skipper and dive master are both very professional, always ensuring your safety, and are also very friendly. I would highly recommend this trip to small families or groups of friends, as it would make for an amazing experience together.

“Up close and fantastic - swimming with seals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

This is possibly the most incredible experience on South Africa's garden route. After a short boat ride you dip into the water, right in the middle of a seal colony. The little critters are insatiably curious and come and ogle you as you float by. An amazing experience!

“Brilliant fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

I was a bit scared at first (worried a shark would turn up for Seal breakfast and get me instead) but none did - and our guides didn't seem in the least surprised by this. Once I'd gotten over my nervousness and jumped in the water, I instantly forgot the sharks. What a magnificent experience this is; floating in the water surrounded by playful curious seals who seem to be as enamored by us as we are of them. If you get a chance, do this experience, you will not regret it.
