The Great African Sea Forest

Join Us

Jump into Cape Town’s magical ocean with us and discover a colourful wonderland. The Great African Kelp Forest is 1 of 9 sea forests globally and the only one in Africa. Teeming with colour and life, there is no place quite like it. We will explore the kelp forest and possibly encounter schools of fish, seals, penguins, small sharks, octopus and curious sea creatures.

Snorkeler Reviews

This was on my bucket list for this visit to Muizenberg, and yes, after watching the documentary movie, 'My octopus teacher'. If I must use one word to describe this experience it would be 'magical'. Stephan was such a great host, knowledgeable, super friendly and eager to share his free diving passion and love for the ocean with us, outside and inside the water. The whole group arrived excited and ready to explore the ocean and the beauty she has to offer and we were not disappoint. I felt so alive when we got our of the water. Daniela although we did not get to meet you, your communication was top notch and on point. Thank you. I will definitely encourage all my friends to concider this experience. It is a MUST DO! Thank you guys and yes, you will see me again.

Martin is an awesome guide! He showed me creatures I definitely wouldn’t have spotted, including an octopus!!! It was so cutey and I’m impressed that he saw it cause it was hidden and camouflaged 🙂 He continuously made sure I was comfortable and having a great time, and the kelp forest is really cool to see from within. It’s amazing, highly recommend.

Cape Town FreeDiving provided myself and my girlfriend the best experience of our lives. My girlfriend is a great swimmer but I cannot swim at all. This was no problem at all as Stephan took his time to explain everything to me and was extremely patient with me until I got my breathing right. Thereafter we were able to see the most magical world in the sea. Stephan taught us so much and my life kept changing as we went deeper and deeper into the ocean. At no point was I afraid for my life as Cape Town FreeDiving had fully secured and still gave us enough freedom to see the Sea World at our own pace. They very graciously recorded us and took wonderful pictures which were sent to us. Overall the best experience of my life and I conquered my greatest fear and will definitely be back in future
