Great experience to remember! The guides put you at ease and are very friendly. The animals are curious and let you swim with them without any problems. A very big recommendation if you go to Plettenberg Bay or come in the area! The photos you get afterwards are a nice souvenir!

Great experience! The tour guides were very enthusiastic and took us there. Very nice to swim between the seals, there were a lot of them. We were also lucky enough to see 2 great white sharks alongside the boat and a whale in the distance. We had a really great trip and everything is well organized. We definitely recommend it!

We came across the tour quite by accident and it was more than worth it. Our guide Ryn explained a lot about animals and their habitat, showed us a lot in the water (how the animals react when to which movements) and made great pictures. We had bad luck with the weather and the water was very cold despite the wetsuit but everything else was great. PS: the seals stink extremely .. haha
