Animal Ocean Seal Snorkeling

Animal Ocean has been operating since 2009 and are the original Seal Snorkeling specialists in Cape Town. 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 hot showers, bathrooms and change cubicles as well as WiFi and refreshments on site.

Their season operates from August 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. Join them for a unique marine adventure and meet the friendly Cape fur seal locals!
