Here's a sampling of what Cape Town diving and snorkeling is like. It will not disappoint! We have wrecks, seals, sharks (broadnose sevengill cowsharks appear in the video), kelp forests, sting rays and a host of other marine life for you to enjoy.

Diving with seals in Cape Town can be done on both sides of the Cape Peninsula. At Partridge Point in False Bay one can dive or snorkel around the Seal Rock haul-out spot, and in the Atlantic off Hout Bay there is Duiker Island, also suitable for diving and snorkeling.
In addition to these designated seal colonies, divers see seals on most of their dives, often at the safety stop. A cage diving trip to Seal Island will give an opportunity to see (but not dive with) the largest seal colony off Cape Town.
