Get up close and personal with a colony of Cape fur seals, on their terms and in their natural environment.

You will kit up for your sea kayak and snorkel excursion at the Shark Warrior Adventure Centre on Seaforth Beach and after a brief instructional from our qualified seal snorkel guide, you will board your kayak and head out to the seal rock.

Arriving some ten minutes later at the rock after a gentle paddle, your guide will secure your kayak and help you don your snorkel kit. When satisfied that you are all set and safe, your guide will instruct you to get into the water and together you will snorkel around the rock to the seals.
Spend up to 40 minutes in the calm and shallow waters snorkeling amongst the seals and other creatures of the kelp forest before returning to your anchored kayak where you will climb aboard, stow your snorkel gear and begin the return kayak trip back to the Adventure Centre via the coastline, taking in famous Boulders Beach and other sights that can be found in the area.
