Brilliant! One of the high points of our Garden Route tour. Highly recommend it -- friendly team, excellently organized, good equipment. It's a simply stunning experience to be swimming in the ocean with the seals, who come right up to to you and swim by your side. Unforgettable. - Jeff (Anchorage guest house)
