Seal Island – Duiker Island

The harbour of Hout Bay, departure point for cruises to Seal Island and Duiker Island, is just 4 minutes’ drive away from the African Family Farm. South African fur seals have made their homes on these islands.

You may choose from three cruises offered by Drumbeat Charters:
Island & Chapmans Peak
This is a 1 hour cruise which leaves from Hout Bay harbour to Duiker Island to view the Cape Fur Seals. From there the boat will cross the bay and travel back to the harbour along the cliffs and caves of Chapmans Peak.
Seal Island & Shipwreck
This 1 hour cruise is one of our special signature trips to see the Cape Fur Seals at Duiker Island and then continues below the Kabonkelberg mountain range to Moari Bay notoriously known for its Shipwrecks. There you will be able to view the spectacular remains of the wreck of the Boss 400 which ran a ground in a Cape winter storm in 1995.
Seal Island Cruise
This is a 40 minute cruise from Hout Bay harbour to Duiker Island the Seal Colony beneath the well known Sentinel Mountain where you can view thousands of Cape Fur Seals in their natural environment.
