I went on 2 dives with 2 different guides both very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and both had very good spotting eyes.

We saw beautiful coral 🪸 , nudibranch, pipe fish, pyjama shark 🦈, zebra shark 🦈, wobbegong 🦈, octopus 🐙 , ragged tooth shark 🦈 and a plethora of fish 🐟 The visibility was between 10m - 15m and the temperature was 16 degrees but you are well kitted out.

I also had an add on dive with cape fur seals 🦭 . The depth was between 1.5 - 2.5 meters for approx. 30 minutes. Buffeted by the swell but hundreds of seals 🦭 in the water some coming within inches of contact... absolutely amazing.

Highly recommend

What a little gem of a company. They took my 8 year old daughter on their seal swim. Their instructors Dawie and Kayra were incredible. They made my daughter feel so safe at all times. We also did their bubble maker. Highly recommend for parents with little ones. This is done in the hotel pool. Again Kayra was so kind and patient while in the pool With the kids. Well done to

This was a really enjoyable dive with seals.

My wife and I are both PADI AOW from the UK, but we didn't take any dive kit on holiday so we hired the full set.

The communication with ProDive was easy and they responded promptly to my many questions beforehand. On the day we turned up and were supplied with very good equipment by the DM. He was friendly and chatty - we were the only divers on the trip so it was very personal! The ride out to the seal colony on the RIB was bumpy but if you follow the instructions from the skipper and staff it's fun and safe. Just be ready to bounce around a bit if you don't hold on...

The dive itself is basically in 5m of water and you sit still on the sandy bottom while hundreds of seals curiously investigate you! Some will come right up to you, some will nibble at your fins. Wonderful. With the surge and the sandy bottom it can get a bit cloudy - the water is definitely clearer at the surface.

Bring your camera, or they will lend you gopro if you buy a memory card.

As the colony is under marine reserve rules, it's a shortish dive of 20-25 mins but frankly seemed enough.

We did the fur seal snorkeling tour and it was one of the best experiences in South Africa!! The guides were professional and fun and being in the water with the seals was unbelievable! Not only that, but I forgot my earrings and they actually sent them by mail afterwards, so their service is really extraordinary! Definitely recommend them.

Unfortunately definitely not a great experience with this company. The dive instructor was impatient and aggressive passive: I had problems with my mask, I told the dive instructor about this a couple of times, his reaction was uncomfortable. He told me to hurry up, go under the water and that the mask was ok. At one point i start to get panic because I didn’t feel well by this instructor. I dived about 20 times and never had this experience with a company. The dive instructor told me after the dive, we were in a dangerous area (but he didn’t told me when I was in the water and I felt he was also a little bit in panic) and that the group was to big. This company gives my a really bad experience with diving.

Swimming with the Seals was an incredible experience. When we arrived the Prodive staff were friendly, they went out of their way to help and assist the younger children in our group (5 children) and were very organised. They made it an absolute breeze. The water that we snorkeled in was crystal clear. The seals were inquisitive and playful, they swam around us for the entire duration of the snorkel. If you are in the Plett area this activity is a MUST!

An absolutely must do adventure while in Plettenberg bay. My 12 and 11 year old rated swimming with the seals as one of their all time best experiences. Pro Dive staff are efficient and took great care of us.

Seal swim is a must when in Plettenberg Bay .Me and my family had an experience of a lifetime. The seals were super friendly and playful. Not sure who enjoyed it more the kids or the grownups. Very organised and professionally run charters. Friendly and experienced staff. They were very helpful with my younger kids.

We took the family to swim with the seals to celebrate my daughter's 11th birthday. What an unforgettable experience for all of us.
It was a safe and well organised experience, unforgetable wildlife encounter for the kids.
