You will be met on arrival by our experienced seal guide who will sign you in and assist with fitting your snorkel gear (changing rooms and lockers are available on site). Once every-one has geared up, the group will take a short stroll on the beach to the boat where you be given a briefing by the skipper and seal guide on boat procedures and the seal snorkelling experience, before embarking on a short boat ride to Robberg Nature Reserve. You will then get to jump into the water with your guide for an exhilarating 30 minute snorkel experience with the seals. On arrival back at Pro Dive our facilities include changing rooms and shower facilities where can freshen up after your once in a life time marine animal encounter.
