On this charter, we follow the shoreline to Seal Island, passing Glencairn, The Clan Stuart shipwreck, Fish Hoek, onto the bohemian village of Kalk Bay which still has a traditional fishing harbour and then to Muizenberg.
Seal Island has approximately 75 000 Cape Fur seals, a variety of bird life and of course the Great White shark. In winter, these sharks are very active and one can view the natural predation from the surface, which is a unique encounter very seldom experienced.
From Seal Island, we head to Boulders Beach, home to the famous large colony of endangered African Penguins.
This cruise is approximately 2 ½ hours. This charter can be combined with our Cape Point Cruise, lasting approximately 4 ½ to 5 hours.
