Cape Town is such a magical place and we are spoilt for choice with everything on offer. There is so much to do and see and explore and experience and we try very hard to fill in as much as we can to take advantage of all the beauty and fun that surrounds us.
We spent some time in the beautiful Hout Bay a few weekends ago and made sure we planned a little visit to the Seals. Drumbeat Charters is based in the Hout Bay Harbour and has been around for some 25 years. They offer daily boat tours to Duiker Island to see the Cape Fur Seals as well as being the only boat to travel a little further out to the Shipwreck. We picked a pretty chilly day to go out and the water was choppy but that didn’t matter. Drumbeat Charters operates 364 days a year (the Argus cycle tour is the only day they cannot open because of all the road closures) and come rain or shine, the Drumbeat boat will welcome all onboard for a gorgeous trip out to sea. The views of Chapmans Peak are incredible and being able to watch the thousands of Cape Fur Seals in their natural habitat is quite amazing.
Drumbeat Charters is licensed to carry 120 passengers and has 2 toilets, inside and outside seating and a licenses bar on board. They cater for local and international visitors and will happily provide you with info on the seals in pretty much any language you choose (27 different languages available). Boat trips cost R70 pp and are an hour long.
