The experience was fantastic! It's great to get up close and personal with the seals. Stuart was great at making you feel relaxed and he was very informative. You get a good amount of time in the water with the curious seals. I'd highly recommend, and I'd do it again!

Super Organisation. Es wird auf die Tiere geachtet das sie nicht gestresst sind. Anfassen ist nicht erlaubt was ich super fand! Da ich bei offenen Meer schon mal eine Panikattake hatte wurde auf mich geachtet. Als ich mich erschöpft fühlte bekam ich sofort eine Schwimmhilfe. Ich schwamm damit nur noch ober Wasser ohne zu schnorcheln was für mich komplett ausreichte. Die Robben kommen zum spielen, tauchen auf und unter, es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis und ich hab mich immer absolut sicher gefühlt!

Tolles Erlebnis! Stuart ist ein super netter Guide, konnte sehr viele Fragen beantworten und hat alles super erklärt. Wir haben hunderte Seelöwen gesehen, ein einmaliges Erlebnis. Es wurde auch darauf geachtet, dass niemand die Tiere anfasst. Bei so einem Ausflug ist uns immer wichtig, dass dennoch Wert auf den Schutz der Tiere gelegt wird und dies wird hier in jedem Fall erfüllt!
