Seal Scuba Dive (ProDive)

Plettenberg Bay

Activity Description

THIS IS BOUND TO BE ONE OF YOUR MOST EXCITING INTERACTIONS WITH MARINE ANIMALS EVER!

Seals, so ungainly on land, are transformed into the most graceful creatures once they enter the water. Their large, intelligent eyes follow the divers as they swim playfully amongst them, blowing bubbles & moving in for a closer look – this is a once in a lifetime diving encounter!

The Seal Colony is found on the Robberg Peninsula & is only a 10-minute boat ride from the dive centre. It is a shallow dive (4-6m) & is suitable for all divers.

Not qualified? Join us for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving course, which includes a lecture, pool session & seal dive (only takes one day)!

Is it Safe?
The seals are friendly & inquisitive, however as with any animal – if provoked or harassed, they would be capable of causing harm.

You will be met on arrival by our experienced seal guide who will sign you in & assist with fitting your snorkel & scuba gear (changing rooms & lockers are available on site). Once everyone has geared up, the group will take a short stroll on the beach to the boat where you be given a briefing by the skipper & seal guide on boat procedures & the seal scuba experience, before embarking on a short boat ride to Robberg Nature Reserve. You will then get to jump into the water with your guide for an exhilarating 30 minute scuba dive with the seals. On arrival back at Pro Dive our facilities include changing rooms & shower facilities where can freshen up after your once in a life time marine animal encounter.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic, boat launch was also fun. Awesome experience with the young pups, would highly recommend ? - Richard


The dive itself was exceptional, providing a unique opportunity to connect with nature in such a personal way. The team makes it a relaxt day, combined with their enthusiasm for the marine life, created an atmosphere of both thrill and comfort. - Sebastiaan


It's one of the best diving centres I've been to. Besides the sparkling new equipment/suits they have something you can't buy - maximum engaged personal truly dedicated to their work. They took care of us with maximum attention as we are newbies and not experienced divers. Our confidence grew with their awesome talented instructors. We had unforgettable seal adventure with them. Thanks a lot guys! - Elena


It was very enjoyable. Managed to get amazing photo's. - Rob


My son and I did the Seal dive. The water was rather cold and the visibility very disappointing. However the activity with the seals was exiting and we overall had a good experience. I can not fault the service and both our dive master and skipper were good and professional. Well done.. - Rufus
