Animal Ocean Seal Snorkeling

Join the Seal Snorkeling experts for a unique marine wildlife adventure. Plunge into the crisp waters of the Atlantic Ocean and snorkel with the Cape Fur seals at Duiker Island, home to about 8000 of these friendly creatures.

Animal Ocean has been operating since 2009 and was set up by the original Seal Snorkeling specialists.  Owner Steve Benjamin and his team of skippers and Marine Guides welcome you to their Snorkel Centre in Hout Bay, to share their passion and love for the marine environment and to help you experience this exhilarating activity.  Visitors can enjoy the comfort of changing cubicles,  hot showers and bathrooms. WiFi is available. Refreshments are also on offer.

Their season operates from September to May each year, with the best time to visit during the heat of Cape Town’s summer or in March and April when the seal pups are learning to swim.



  • All snorkeling equipment provided
  • Use of facilities at Snorkel Centre
  • Professional skipper and marine guides on board
