What you'll do

Welcome to Cape Town Freediving!
You are about to snorkel the magnificent Great African Seaforest, one of the SEVEN NATURAL WONDERS OF THE WORLD!

There are only 9 such eco-systems & this is the ONLY one along the African continent.

OVERVIEW:
1. We start with a warm welcome & introduction. Next we will brief you on the snorkel location for the day and answer questions / provide information as to what to expect at the snorkel site.

> We access each location from shore (not a boat) & choose the location with your utmost enjoyment, safety & ease in mind.

2. We provide you with a high quality wetsuit & snorkel gear to keep you snug & warm.

3. We bring a big yellow buoy for safety & for you to hold on to if a little more reassurance is required.

THE SNORKEL ADVENTURE:
We will be in the ocean (snorkelling) for about 1 hour.
We will explore the incredible kelp forest floating/gliding on the ocean surface. The kelp forest is an incredible sight to see and some of the things we may encounter include kelp forest landscapes, schools of fish, sea stars, seals, penguins, small sharks, octopus & other curious sea creatures. The kelp forest is truly wild so come with an open & curious mind, be inspired & leave feeling refreshed & in awe.

SEA YOU SOON!
We can't wait to meet you & share this snorkel adventure with you!

    This was a fabulous experience. What a privilege to be able to snorkel in one of the 7 natural wonders. It was professional and informative with great guides. I highly recommend this.

    All in all a great experience with beautiful views of the sea forest. Hosts were great, Paul in particular was very attentive and friendly. It's good to be aware that when travelling there you go to a separate destination action first to have a briefing and get equipment and then drive to another for Snorkeling - so own transport is required from there and adds more time onto the trip.

    The pictures don’t do it justice! It was beyond magical! Martin took excellent care of us, and made us feel comfortable from start to finish.

    What an awesome experience! I would do this again any time and our guide, Martin, was really great with showing us the ropes and a few gems in the water.

    Would recommend this experience for anyone visiting Cape Town or even for those that live here that maybe haven't had a chance to explore the magical local kelp forests.

    Stephan was an amazing guide! He sized us with gear that fit comfortably and the wetsuits kept us warm the whole time to our surprise! Highly recommend snorkeling near Stephan as he spotted so many things such as shark eggs, pajama sharks, octopus, etc. He also films the trip on a gopro and shares the footage so no need to go buy your own underwater camera just for one snorkel trip! We cannot wait for another outing!
