Seal Snorkelling, Freediving and Ocean Safari Adventure Experiences

For unique, intimate ocean adventures

Last updated: 22 November 2019

If you like your ocean adventures to be all-inclusive and yet feel totally exclusive, then Ocean Experiences is your kind of crew. They offer a variety of open water adventures, from seal snorkelling to scuba and freediving, in small groups and to unique locations.

You can spot the Big Marine 5 on the 1.5hr Ocean Safari. Even if you take the Table Bay Safari, the mini Ocean Safari suitable for kids from 5, is shorter (45 minutes), and more affordable for its discounted price of R550 instead of R600. 

WATCH: ULTIMATE OCEAN EXPERIENCES

UNIQUE SEAL EXPERIENCES WITH MASTER DIVERS
Ocean Experiences creates unique, intimate ocean adventures. That’s why they visit the smaller, lesser-known seal community that lives around Strawberry Rocks, in front of the Twelve Apostles. With fewer boats and less divers around, you get a personalised ocean experience. Plus, all of their instructors are (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) PADI-certified divers with a deep love of the ocean. So expect some real insights into the seal species, as well as local knowledge and expertise on the marine life that hugs the Cape coastline. 

A RANGE OF OPTIONS
Choose from an Ocean Safari, where you get to spot the Marine Big Five: Whales, dolphins, African penguins, Cape fur seals and the elusive mola mola or sunfish in their natural habitat. Or enjoy seal snorkelling, scuba diving with seals or freediving options. Not qualified to scuba? No worries, Ocean Experiences offers beginner, advanced and even divemaster PADI scuba diving courses, as well as a range of freediving experiences and courses

GO ON A 45M OR 1.5M-LONG OCEAN SARAFI  
The 1.5 hour Ocean Safari takes you around Cape Town, with the chance to see not only the Marine Big Five, but three species of whales, four species of dolphins and African penguins.

If you don’t have the time, opt for the 45-minute Table Bay Safari and still get to experience some of South Africa’s richest marine life. The company’s boat trips leave from the V&A Waterfront, every day, twice a day. 

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR SEAL ADVENTURE
All adventures (scuba and snorkelling) start with an equipment fitting (all gear is provided) and a boat ride out to the site. 

If you’re on board for snorkelling, you will spend most of your time floating on the water, looking down at these incredibly playful marine mammals as they swim and dive around you.

Every seal experience is unique and organic. There’s no feeding or chumming. In fact, a key trademark of Ocean Experiences’ seal snorkels and dives is their focus on conservation and education. So expect to learn more about seals, both from the mammals themselves and their team of experts on board. 

Groups are limited to a maximum of 6 divers and a maximum of 10 people on board. Light refreshments and snacks are also included in the price.
