Full description
You'll begin by meeting your group and guide at Hobie Beach, Plettenberg Bay. From there you'll simply sign in, grab your wet suit, mask, and fins, and go. You'll then take an exciting boat ride to the colony, which is situated on the Robberg Peninsula. Whilst traveling your guide will take over as everyone jumps into the water to begin the experience. The seals get very exited, and love playing with swimmers when they visit. This is bound to be one of the most rewarding marine mammal experience you will ever have, and following the swim you'll take a 20-minute scenic boat ride back to the beach where a fresh-water shower will be waiting.

Mega geile Erfahrung, super Guide Die Robben sind sehr zutraulich und interagieren mit einem. Auf dem Rückweg konnten wir auch noch Delfine sehen. Jederzeit wieder und nur weiter zu empfehlen.
