During our Seal Snorkeling trips, we strongly advise taking along some sort of Waterproof Camera to capture your experience. If you are unable to get your hands on one, we offer GoPro Hero2 camera’s for rent, and our guests take the memory cards home with them. The experience with the Cape Fur Seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) is truly a unique and special encounter. Many people are gob-smacked at how curious and playful the seals are with these strange wetsuit coated things floating around with them, and the GoPro’s in their hands. We have put together a small collection of videos that our Seal Snorkeling guests have put out there for everyone to see how amazing and incredible the experience is.
“One of my best experiences in South Africa so far: Snorkeling with seals at Cape Town with Animal Ocean.
Filmed with my GoPro Hero3+ Black @1080/60 and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro.”
“Seal Snorkling and Swimming in Hout Bay, Capetown South Africa.
Very nice experience! Enjoy for yourself…”
“On April 18, 2015 I went snorkeling with Cape Fur Seals near Cape Town, South Africa. Animal Ocean is a fantastic company and it was a really awesome experience. I highly recommend!”
“Cape Fur Seal Snorkeling trip with Animal Ocean at Duiker Island. Footage made with two GoPro Hero 3’s (Silver Edition) and editing done with GoPro Studio(GoPro Edit Template used). I highly recommend this trip for anyone who is within driving distance of Hout Bay. It was great fun :)”
