Customer Reviews

I enjoyed swimming with the seals. In fact, we felt it was a highlight of the trip and everyone in my family loved it. The only thing I would recommend that people realize is that it is a high-adrenaline experience, not a relaxing one, and it's best for people who are very comfortable in the water and comfortable with animals. That being said, we loved it! - Elisheva Liberman

A wonderful experience. Our guide was very professional. The photos and videos she took was stunning. I will recommend this for everyone. Great way of showing tourists our wonderful country. - Karen

Great experience and friendly and encouraging guides. Definitely recommended! - Mary Nel

Absolutely loved it! I’ve been swimming with seals before but this was a unique experience just for the sheer number of seals in the water with you. The guides are friendly and professional. Would recommend! - Sally Hurst

it was a great experience, the staff was welcoming and knowledgable. When on the way back the spotted dolphins they even gave us some time to look at them. Only down side on monday the trip was cancelled due to bad weather and email send to us at 11:45, we were there at 12:00 so did not see the email. But reschedule was easy enough for the next day - sanne van eerden
