Experience highlights 🌞

Boat ride

Dive with seals and experience life underwater

Duiker Island is a small rocky island that is home to 5000 Cape Fur seals. The snorkeling site is only 1-5m deep so we don’t go out if the swell is too large. We use thick 5mm wetsuits and vests to keep you warm. Motion sickness is a problem for some people, so please be aware of this.

You will get changed at our offices and driven to the boat inside the harbor, from here it’s a short ride to the island. You will snorkel for 30-40 mins, enjoying the kelp forest and Cape fur seals. Once the tour is complete, there is hot chocolate and biscuits for you on the boat. We will then return for a hot shower at our snorkel center.

Trips depend on weather and ocean conditions. We aim to inform snorkelers if their trip is canceled 24 hours before your arrival time. However, we will cancel on the day if the ocean conditions are not safe to snorkel. We will refund in full, but they do take a while to process, please be patient. If you are concerned, please call us a day or two before to check the ocean conditions and if trips may be canceled.
