A wonderful family outdoor experience is a boat trip to the Cape fur seal and bird sanctuary on Duiker Island, also known as Seal Island. Your kids will love the opportunity to get up close to these playful, curious animals. Any excursion that involves water, always turns out to be great fun for the family and this tour certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Hop aboard a charter and make your way from Hout Bay to the island. As you splash through the ocean, be captivated by views of spectacular Chapmans Peak Drive and lofty Sentinel Mountain. As you get closer to the island, watch the seals frolic, flop on rocks and sunbathe in their natural habitat. Learn about their behaviour from a knowledgeable guide, watch seabirds, view thick kelp forests and if you are lucky, you might see whales and dolphins in the deep. Great fun awaits the family here.
