Full description
You'll begin by meeting your group and guide at Hobie Beach, Plettenberg Bay. From there you'll simply sign in, grab your wet suit, mask, and fins, and go. You'll then take an exciting boat ride to the colony, which is situated on the Robberg Peninsula. Whilst traveling your guide will take over as everyone jumps into the water to begin the experience. The seals get very exited, and love playing with swimmers when they visit. This is bound to be one of the most rewarding marine mammal experience you will ever have, and following the swim you'll take a 20-minute scenic boat ride back to the beach where a fresh-water shower will be waiting.

Mega cool experience, great guide The seals are very trusting and interact with you. On the way back we could also see dolphins. Again and again and only to be recommended.

It was just great. It is an experience not to be missed. Experiencing these amazing animals up close and personal in their natural habitat is a must do in South Africa.
