VIP Trips: Exclusive Seal Viewing / Swim Experience

Watch the Seals in Action

The Ultimate Marine Animal Encounter – a Safe, Fun Activity for the Whole Family! No Experience Needed!

Come explore our beautiful Plett oceans in the company of your loved ones! Hire one of our boats exclusively for you and your friends and family and we will take you on a VIP experience where you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal to the most friendly and playful marine animals in their natural environment.

Swimming with the seals at Plett

The Seal Colony is situated on the Robberg Nature Reserve, which is a 10-minute boat ride from Plett’s main beach. When you arrive at the seal colony they will welcome you by bounding toward the boat with their unmistakable glee, showing off their acrobatic skills. They are inviting you to join in!

The Brown Fur Seals are some of the gentlest of underwater mammals, and love to play. They are friendly and you will notice the pure joy they get out of your attention. They may even tug at your equipment and we suggest that you don’t tug back as it might frighten them.

The seal swimming adventure is very safe and the whole family can enjoy the experience. Children younger than 6 years old are able to view the seals from the boat while children older than 6 years old need to be able to swim confidently.
