DescriptionSail on South Africa’s only glass bottomed passenger boat on this nature-filled cruise to Duiker Island. Also known as seal island, Duiker Island is home to a colony of thousands of Cape fur seals that you can view up close on this tour. Circe Launch’s qualified and experienced crew enable visitors to get within just feet of the island, allowing for intimate views of the seals in their natural habitat. The island, located in Hout Bay just outside of Cape Town, is teeming with life including hundreds of seabirds, as well as magnificent kelp forests indigenous to the region.
Circe Launches was established in 1973 and is the original 'Seal Island' cruise operator from Hout Bay Harbour. Duiker Island is home to approximately 6000 seals who can be seen on land and in the water. Make sure you make the most of the glass bottom in case there are any sharks or whales in the area.
There are both undercover and outdoor areas on the boat, so please wear weather appropriate clothing and bring sunscreen. Remember to bring a camera to capture some of the magnificent wildlife.
