Full description
Go on a boat trip from Simon’s Town to Seal Island. Discover the 60,000-strong population of Cape Fur seals that gives the island its name. At the start of your cruise, you will be able to see African Penguins swimming to or from their feeding grounds and see the Roman Rock Lighthouse before heading off to Seal Island. You will also spy diverse seabirds, whales, dolphins, sunfish, and many other species of marine wildlife. Relax on board a 30-foot catamaran with a walk-around cockpit, allowing for good freedom of movement around the vessel. In the enclosed cabin there is an electric-flush toilet and double bed to make your time at sea as comfortable as possible.
