Reviewed 23 April 2014

It was an amazing surprise to discover this adventure to swim amongst the seals. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Up close and personal with these creatures was truly an experience which I recommend to anyone visiting Plettenberg Bay. Would love to do it again when visiting the area.

“THAT WAS RAAADDD!!!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Jaco and his crew are the heart of this experience!!! Even though the seals were also a big part of it, i believe that the people that made it possible were the biggest reward. What a beautiful and exciting experience do they provide!!! To be able to commute with this creatures in this way was, not only fun, but a "bucket list" achievement. Thank you Jaco and Offshore adventures team!!!xxx

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

An absolutely fabulous experience where you feel at one with nature. It was really interactive with the very inquisitive seals swimming between us all the time. The guide and the boat captain were very good and we were explained all the rules for safety explicitly. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to return with my family

“Getting we in Plett with local seals”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The guides and boat driver were superb, and the whole excursion was very well organized. Our guide showed us how to get close to the animals without getting too close to the rocky shoreline, and made sure we were safe. In addition, the photos she took were amazing. We had our own underwater camera, but her photos were far superior. This is so much more fun than shark-cage diving!

“A great time swimming with the seals”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

The presence of a unique colony of South African fur seals allows you to safely swim with seals off the Plettenburg Bay. The young pups that we swam with were very playful and in abundance and it is a unique experience to be snorkeling with them in the Indian Ocean. I'm not sure there is another place where you can do this safely in the world. Offshore adventure guides seem to be very knowledgeable and helpful. The short boat ride can be a little rough but ultimately the area where you swim with the seals is little less turbulent. I would recommend going in the morning when the winds are slightly lower. It makes for a calmer experience. Well worth the costs and a very enjoyable activity for the day
