Go Seal Snorkelling, Duiker Island

Seabirds shadow you overhead. But it’s the sleek black bodies of Cape fur seals that hold your attention.

Thousands warm themselves on the low-lying rocks of Duiker Island a short distance from the epic scenery of Hout Bay. Hundreds more playfully dance around those lucky enough to snorkel the shallow waters around this tiny island.

Interacting with these alluring animals goes beyond the usual safari experience to one where humans and seals are – temporarily at least – equals in the Cape’s cool waters.
