Seal Island is situated only 8 nautical miles (about 16kms) from Simon's Town, Western Cape. Seal Island is home to 75,000 Cape Fur Seals, 24 different bird species and is the hunting ground of the Great White Shark.
Boat trips are run out to the island, and the views en route are truly spectacular, with Cape Point to your right, Table Mountain and the Constantia wine route to your left, and the majestic Hottentot's Holland mountain range ahead.
All year round, you can look forward to spotting dolphins, Humpback whales, and Brydes whales. From July to November, the Southern Right whales are plentiful in the bay and you can be assured of a sighting.
During the winter months the Great White sharks are extremely active around the island and visitors are known to witness natural predations.
