CAPE TOWN SCENIC SAILING ADVENTURE

Sailing in Table Bay is easily one of the best ways to experience the magnificence of Cape Town. There’s really nothing quite like making your way towards historic Robben Island by boat and looking back onto majestic Table Mountain from the water.

While you sip on your cocktail or frolic in the waves on your jetski, your skipper will barbecue up a storm off the back of the yacht or get busy prepping canapés to whet the appetite. Bubbles, crayfish and local delicacies like biltong, wines from the nearby winelands and local craft beers will be available. Each sailing adventure can be customised to your own preferences, experience level and timing... all the very best to create a truly unique Capetonian experience.

SNORKEL WITH CAPE FUR SEALS

Duiker Island is home to a colony of between 3-5,000 Cape Fur seals, which are not found anywhere else in the world but the Southern African coast. There are always seals in the area and one of the few places without sharks due to the shallow depth of the water.

Get up close and personal with the playful and curious Cape Fur seal. They are playful and curious and a joy to interact with. This is the ultimate wildlife experience for those that want to be immersed in nature and enjoy the thrill of interacting with animals in their natural habitat.

Enjoy a short boat ride from Hout Bay Harbour in your full wetsuit and booties (provided) and dive straight into the water with these graceful and elegant marine mammals.
