More about Seal Island Trips

Seal Island's original name is Duiker Island, home of the Cape Cormorant or "Duiker" in Afrikaans. It is home to a colony of Cape Fur Seals as well as many Sea Gull species.

This trip lasts 20 - 30 minutes. We launch from Hout Bay Harbour and head straight to Seal Island, going as fast or as slow as you are comfortable. Once at Seal Island, our guide will answer all your questions about the Cape Fur Seal and Seal Island. You can enjoy the seals frolicking in their natural habitat. Close by is Dungeons - world-renowned surfing spot. Our boat is built for speed. The 2 x 200HP Yamaha engines ensure that you will fly across the waves, going as fast as you can handle it. We do specific speed runs for the adrenalin junkies, with high speed turns included. Our boat, CAWSAW, is an 8.5 m Gemini semi-rigid rubber duck, with two 4-stroke 200 HP Yamaha Engines. It complies with all the regulations set by the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA). The SAMSA approved safety equipment onboard includes a radio, life jackets, a first aid kit, and flares. The boat can accommodate up to 10 Passengers. There are always two crew members on board, consisting of the skipper and a deckhand. Our Skippers and Deck Hands have over twenty years of experience at sea.

More About Cape Town

Captain Jacks

The concept of Captain Jack’s was born a number of years ago, from the need to have a fast boat on the water, available immediately, to take people out on the water without delay and back in a timely fashion.
