See Cape Point from a different angle. Jump into the water with the Cape Fur Seals and have a blast with the clowns of the sea. The Cape Fur Seal activity is available all year and anybody is welcome to join in on this activity.
Cape Point Tour
See Cape Point from a different angle. Get that photo you always see in the National Geographic magazine. Make a pass through Smitswinkel bay and Buffels bay past the Dias crosses and close to the cliffs below the historic lighthouse that leads up to the point.
Visit the Roman Rock Lighthouse – the only lighthouse on our coast to have been erected on a single rock.
We often see penguins, whales and a whole range of seabirds on trips down to the tip of the peninsula.
Jump into the water with the Cape fur Seals and have a blast with the clowns of the sea. On our way back from Cape Point we stop at Partridge Point that is home to a few hundred seals.
They are extremely curious and playful and will entertain divers and snorkelers alike. They mostly hang around the surface when they are in the water but will dive down to 25 metres to Scuba divers.
The Cape fur Seal activity is available all year and anybody is welcome to join in on this activity.

Seal & Kelp Forest
The Cape Fur Seal dive is a super fun and interactive dive and one of the signature dives that Cape Town has offered for more than two decades. Then explore our kelp forests and possibly encounter the rare Sevengill Shark
Pelagic Shark Dive
The Blue sharks are more commonly seen on these trips, they are very calm and inquisitive and will approach divers and snorkelers in most cases. We encounter several other special creatures on our trip.
