    Victoria & Alfred Waterfront
    Stop: 7 hours
    When you arrive at the dive centre you will be met by the friendly OceanX crew, followed by the completion of paperwork. Once everyone is ready the experience starts with an informative safety and trips briefing. After the briefing you will try on all of your snorkelling gear. You will don your life jackets and head to the boat. Enjoy a 30-40min boat ride along the coastline with stunning views of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles mountain range. On the way to one of Cape Town's Cape Fur seal colony there is a chance of spotting marine life such as whales, dolphins, penguins and even the allusive sunfish. Upon arrival at a site you will be met by the seasoned seal colony of various ages. Once the boat is secured its time to get kitted, and to jump into the waters to enjoy 30 - 40min snorkeling experience with the seals. Get back onto the boat and enjoy a hot cup of hot chocolate, water and biscuits and relax whilst enjoying the views before heading back to the V&A Waterfront.

Thanks so much for joining us, I am so pleased that you enjoyed the trip. The seal snorkeling is certainly a unique experience - a "#1 must do activity" when in Cape Town. Hope you come join us again.

Well I came to the V&A waterfront because I needed a laptop and it took quite sometime for the contract to be resolved and at the time I didn't think much of this so I decided to go and explore a bit while a wait for them to wrap things up for me at the Store.

So on the way to the restaurants I come across a gentleman who had what I can only say is the most impressive moustache at the waterfront at the IQOS stand which resulted in me buying one haha

So as I came outside to the harbour I decided you know what lets book a cruise or something and see how it goes.

Thats the true beauty of Cape Town there is so much to do if you are just willing to do it.

so get off your ass and support our local boys and girls while the tourists are away because they need you now

Despite the weather putting a stop to our adventure before reaching the seals, Chloe and the crew still made the best of it for us. The ride was fun and we got a spectacular view of the city.

For my first time getting in the ocean and especially in the middle of the ocean... So afraid of sharks, Chloe made me feel so comfortable and at ease.
She really made my seal snorkel experience amazing!
Thank you!

What an amazing experience! My ocean adventure was exactly what I'd hoped it would be.I was able to snorkel with beautiful seals and see our ocean in such a new light. It would have not been possible without the amazing staff, a huge shout out to Chloe for assisting me through out. A true Ocean Gem. Thanks for the experience!
