Should you be concerned about sharks?
No. The area where we swim with the seals is very shallow (2-3m). It is also where most of the pups hang out thus the older male seals protect the area in pack formations The boat always stay very close. We make use of Shark Shields, an electronic device that puts impulses into the water, which sharks are sensitive to due to their electro receptors on their nose and lateral line.
What if the weather is bad?
Not to worry. We can go out in most weather conditions, even if it rains, the only time we will cancel is if there is an strong east wind or east swell. We will inform booked clients in advance and if we are unable to reschedule, we offer a full refund.
When do you operate?
We operate all year round, 7 days a week.
10h00, 12h00 and 14h00 daily, number and weather dependent.
In season we offer a 08h00 and 16h00 trip as well.
Special arrangements can be made for big groups.
I can’t swim or isn’t a strong swimmer…
That is ok, you can still swim with the seals, we provide wet suits, that keep you buoyend. We have floatation aids available on request.
The guide is present with you in the water at all time.
We don’t swim long distances, we mostly just float around the seals
I am disabled, can I still swim with the seals?
Yes. Give us a call to let us know what your disability is and we will work around it. Nothing gives us more pleasure to allow everyone to have an amazing experience swimming with the seals.
If I don’t want to swim can I still come on the boat?
Yes. Provided there is space available, you can book a seal viewing trip, which will be on the same boat at the swimmers and you can watch everyone else get wet
Does size matter?
No. We have wetsuits in all sizes, catering for kids from 4 years to XXXL.
Do children pay the same as adults?
Yes.Children still need all the equipment required and full a boat seat according SAMSA standards.And they often need more attention during the excursion, which we are more happy to give.
I don’t have an underwater camera. What about pictures?
Available. The guide on every trip takes pictures, which will be available afterwards to view and then purchase on a USB stick on cool animated USB for R250 or we can e-mail you the link at R200.
