Seal Swimming

Plettenberg Bay

Activity Description

Plett Seal Adventures offers you a 1,5-hour guided Seal Swimming trip in the Robberg nature reserve – a marine protected area in Plettenberg Bay. A fun outdoor activity for the whole family, where no experience is needed.

We meet 30 minutes before departure at our office, located at the bottom of Meeding street, Hobie beach parking area, next to the showers. All equipment needed is supplied.

An exciting 20-minute boat ride takes you to the colony where over 6000 fur seals are waiting for you. Time to jump in and have some fun with these playful and very curios creatures. The guides are with you in the water during the entire experience, making sure you are having a great time. The swim lasts 30 minutes and then a scenic, fun ride back to the beach for a shower. The guides are taking photo’s off the trip, that you can download for FREE at our website.

Customer Reviews

Really good. Swimming amongst so many seals is amazing. Very informative guide. Felt very safe. Boat trip out to Robberg is fun too. Highly recommended. - Andrew

What an amazing experience my daughter and I had in December with Plett Seal Adventures. Great staff and guides to get you set up and ready for the experience at a very well appointed and situated location. It all worked so easily. The boat trip was short and then the experience of being in the water with the seals was incredible. With crystal clear water on a sunny day, I was able to get some great footage of the seals as they circled and around and played with us. Their behavior and curiosity make a great interaction with the younger seals playing up and getting really close. Overall, a magical experience! Thank you ... Andrew & Erin Stewart - Andrew

This was the best thing we did on our holiday. The guys there are great, really enthusiastic and entertaining. The whole experience was so much fun. We were very lucky the sea was very calm and we saw dolphins on the way back to the beach. Amazing day ? - Nicki

Good equipment, organization, communication. Great crew including boat. The photos and videos will also be made available free of charge one day after the trip. People make an effort and also take care of the environment by not disturbing the young animals in particular. Really a great experience and definitely worth recommending. - E.

Such a cool experience, we really loved it! The staff and crew that accompanied us were also extremely helpful and kind, they made the experience 10 times cooler. Would really recommend it! - Jason
