Seal Island South Africa

Seal Island is a small island off the coast of False Bay near Cape Town in South Africa.

And it is only a short boat ride from the Bay.

While we were waiting for the boat to arrive this guy was feeding a wild seal by putting a fish in his mouth and leaning off the pier. The wild seal would jump out of the water to take the fish, which was pretty cool. Then he proceeded to try and shake me down for some money for taking a picture of him ha ha. Nice hustle he has going on.

Once on the boat it’s not long until you notice seals all through the bay.

The sea was rough that day my friend’s, like an old man returning soup…

Seal Island is home to over 64, 000 Cape fur seals, and it’s their main breeding grounds.

It’s really cool to watch these seals swimming around the boat and playing in the water.

Now the island is absolutely covered in seals!

The seals jump out of the water then climb over the other seals to find a sun baking spot on the island.

It sure was amazing to see so many seals all together. This was the first time I have ever seen a seal in real life šŸ˜Š And although they are beautiful creatures, man do they smell!!!!
