Duiker Island is the natural habitat of about 10 000 Cape Fur Seals and lies within the Karbonkelberg Marine Protected Area, part of the Table Mountain National Park, Cape Town. These Cape Fur Seals are not fed or trained. The seals behave naturally and interact peacefully in their own, natural environment.
This is a guided underwater wildlife adventure with a maximum of ten snorkelers, two dive guides and one skipper. You can experience seal snorkeling during the Cape Town summer months (September-April). During mid March and April the little seal pups, that have just learned to swim, enter the water to play.
The dive site at Duiker Island is shallow (2m-5m) and the bottom of the ocean is clearly visible. Add the beautiful green kelp forest, through which the seals swim, and the boat trip to and from Duiker Island and you are sure to experience an exiting adventure exploring the marine life underneath, and above, the waters of the sea. Other marine life and birds that you may encounter on your expedition are Dusky Dolphins, Sunfish, Southern Right Whales (in whale season), a pair of Oyster Catchers, Cape Cormorants, endangered Bank Cormorants and more.
