We enjoyed this unique snorkeling very much. It was great to see the seals zooming around underwater and riding the waves. Very well organized and the guides gave clear instructions. Once we were in the water they were very attentive and helpful. I strongly recommend taking dramamine for sea sickness.

Such a lovely experience! The ocean is a special place and being able to explore it was such a treat. The seals are inquisitive and fun, swimming around us and staring at us. It is something different, and really a great trip that everyone can and should enjoy! The guides were superb too. You are fully kitted out, which is great for the cold water, and the hot chocolate on the boat was yummy. Everything is thought of for you - so just go experience it and relax!
