Det skal I lave

You will develop a new appreciation for the ocean environment and the character of Cape Town's kelp forests. Kelp forests are magical places of serenity and wonder.
We start with a crash course on the unique geography of the Cape Peninsula, and the processes that make Cape Town one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems on this planet. We follow up with a quick fish and shark identification lesson, where you'll be introduced to the marine life you may see on the snorkel. Then we get in the water where you help collect data for our marine research program that investigates the diversity and abundance of the local reef and kelp systems. Let's get wet and submerse ourselves in the underwater forests!
Other things to note
Guests must be comfortable swimming as this is a water-based experience. Minors (<12) must be accompanied by an adult.

I'm a Marine Biologist, freediver and certified PADI Master SCUBA Instructor. My passion is to engage the public in marine conservation and experience this incredible ecosystem, the kelp forest first hand. Originally from the UK, I now live and play in Simons Town and dive in the kelp forests of South Africa. I co-founded a marine research organisation that promotes citizen science, conservation and plastic free living. Come and join me and see for yourself!

The majority of our time will be spent snorkeling among the vibrant Kelp Forests of the Cape peninsula in Simons Town, Cape Town. We generally dive from a secluded beach that also offers the possibility of seeing penguins and sea otters.

A great introduction to such a magical place in Cape Town. Friendly and personable guides, good equipment and a stunning location make for a great morning.

I would not have been able to find an octopus, sharks etc without Dylan's help, so I think it's a very worthwhile experience. Dylan was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful morning snorkeling, thank you so much!

We had lovely guides and it was a great experience from a conservation point of view. Unfortunately, one of us needed glasses to see under water and did not have contact lenses so the person could not see a thing under water. Remember your contact lenses to get the most out of this experience :) Thank you for a nice adventure and for the nice pictures afterwards.

I loved this excursion! You really feel like you’re doing a good thing and have fun at the same time! This underwater world is surprisingly beautiful. Except from the fact that it got cold after an hour, I would do it again next time I’m in Cape Town/Simons Town

The best guides I have ever encountered, they were patient with me. Dylan took time to make sure I enjoyed the experience and snorkeled with me and we found some pretty cool stuff

What a great experience. Just under the surface of the water is an entire new world waiting to be discovered. Although I had never snorkeled before, the guidance and support made it easy to learn. The research angle is also wonderful and adds real depth to the experience.
