The Great African Sea Forest
Snorkeling in Cape Town
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.
All gear is provided to ensure that you feel as warm, ready and comfortable as possible. We will also have a safety surface buoy with us during the snorkel to hold on to and store any items. Bring your swim wear, towel, sunscreen and an underwater camera if you have one. We will take care of the rest.
Our snorkel experiences are led by ocean-loving certified freedivers and instructors who have gained vast insights and understanding of the fauna and flora that make our ocean unique. Let us guide you through the kelp and share many of its secrets with you.
Snorkeling Experience: R775 Half Day
We start with a warm welcome & briefing at our freediving centre in Muizenberg.
We introduce the chosen snorkeling site, provide information on what to expect in terms of marine life, explain how to use the equipment and answer questions.
Our chosen locations for snorkeling in Cape Town are always accessible from shore and selected based on the latest ocean conditions.
We provide you with a high quality 5mm wetsuit to keep you warm and other assorted snorkeling gear.
Our snorkeling guide will then take you into the water and lead you through your aquatic experience.
Finally we exit the water, debrief, get changed and reflect on our shared ocean adventure!
The experience includes:
- Use of 5mm wetsuit, gloves, mask, snorkel, fins & socks
- Safety surface buoy to hold on to as well as store water & cameras if required.
- We will be taking photos to share after the experience, but do bring your own UW camera if you have one.
Snorkeling in Cape Town is a truly unique experience. Our ocean adventures serve to awaken a deep connection to nature and Mother Ocean. Come with a curious mind, be inspired and leave feeling refreshed and in awe.
