KELP SHACK MAGIC
This experience will take you on an unexpected environmental and culinary journey.
The Cape kelp forests have recently been announced as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It is the only forest of giant bamboo kelp on our planet, harbouring other-worldly creatures, startling abundance, and rich biodiversity. This enormous habitat fringes the shores of Cape Town and stretches north for more than 1000km into Namibia.
You will be hosted by an epic team of experts who are motivated in environmental conservation and education. They will take you on a magical coastal walk, where you will learn about the indigenous flora and fauna, past and present history, as well as learn how to cook with kelp. It’s all about connecting us as humans to nature and promoting sustainable food sourcing.

SNORKELING WITH SEALS
Seal Snorkeling with Animal Ocean in Hout Bay is a must-do whilst visiting Cape Town - a snorkeling experience like no other! Immerse yourself in the underwater world of the local Cape fur seal population at Duiker Island - only a short 15 minute boat ride from the Hout Bay Harbour. No snorkeling experience necessary, as long as you can swim you can join us! Animal Ocean has been operating since 2009 and are ready to welcome you at our comfortable Snorkel Centre for the best all-round experience.
After the snorkling we take a short walk to the world-famous Mariner’s Wharf, Africa and the Southern Hemisphere’s first harbourfront emporium. Here we will eat fish and chips like the locals do.
