Such a memorable and delightful start of the Christmas day... swimming with the playful Cape seals! Highly recommend this experience. The staff is very funny and entertaining. Been hearing only amazing things about the people at Animal Ocean, so i would have expected nothing less! After the 50 minute seal snorkeling, they gave us hot chocolate and cookies to warm up! And it worked! I will probably do this again while still in South Africa! Worth every cent
