Hey everyone,
have any of you been to seal island (off the coast of Capetown, South Africa). Apparently you can see sharks breaching the waters.
Me and a friend are going to south africa in a week, and we're looking for a tour or a way to get out to seal island.
if any of you have any advice I'd appreciate it :)

I've never been to Seal Island but I did go shark cage diving out of an outfitter in gans baai. There are several tour operators down there that give shark related trips. Also, there are loads of tour operators in Cape Town that will be able to hook you up on a trip to Seal Island. Try the main tourism site: Tourism Cape Town Good luck and happy travels.

You can also contact a local Scuba diving school or club. I hear a lot of them are running trips out to Seal Island daily (weather dependant) as the sharks are hanging around in large(ish) numbers thanks to a combination of seals and the sardine run, which is happening right now.

Have fun!
