Customer Reviews

Snorkelling with Seals in Plettenberg Bay ... absolutely brilliant experience. Offshore ran the trip even though there was only me and my wife booked on at that particular time. Everything necessary is provided - wetsuits, snorkels etc. The boat trip to the seal colony was good fun and we even rescued a seal pup struggling in the water and managed to return it to safety on the rocks. In the water with the seals for around 30/40 minutes which is plenty long enough and is amazing. Offshore Adventures are a very professional set up and we would highly recommend this activity. - David & Alison Gledhill

Such a great morning. Our booking was swapped times and dates last minute but luckily it still worked out and I’m so glad we didn’t miss out. The seals were amazing, it can become a bit overwhelming after about 15mins or so as loads of them come into the water to check you out but they are harmless and are just curious as to who you are. A must do in SA - anna mahon- oneill

Fantastic experience and not to be missed. Great friendly crew and superb all round experience. - Stuart Driver

Swimming with seals was an Amazing experience for my boyfriend and I . Probably the best in our life ! The team was very professional , caring and friendly , we were fully equipped and we felt safe on the boat as well as in the water with seals. We were offered the videos and photos because we booked online ! Thank you very much for this unique experience , we are from REUNION so we have already been swimming with wild animals : whales and dolphins , but we must say that was the best interaction ever ! The seals kept swimming and playing around us , we didn’t t have to make any effort to see them ... I really recommend this activity and this club! - Anne wicinski

The trip was excellent! Definitely the highlight of all the excursions we did during the holidays. The time spent in the water was perfect, not too long but also not too short. I would however like to spend a little less time traveling slowly along side the cliffs because of motion sickness but other than that it was excellent. - Kempen Claassens
