What you'll do

The time of day we go out will be pre-determined by forecast tides and conditions and the experience will take up approximately three hours. I'll take you on a snorkeling journey of our beautiful, turquoise tidal pools. They're filled with life and wonderful diversity! To see pics of many of the species of our tidal pools and more info, check out www.wildblueadventures.co.za. Each pool is its own special gem and the locations are stunning. We will meet at Cape Town Freedivers or Pisces Divers where we'll collect kit, and we'll move on to the tidal pool from there. At the pool we will take in the beauty and kit up. After a snorkelling brief, I will take you out on our tidal pool adventure. While we're in the water I'll take some happy snaps that I'll share with you later that evening. After our snorkel we'll head to a handpicked deli or coffee shop nearby if you feel that way inclined. I'll take your kit and you're free to savour the experience for the rest of the day! The experience takes 3 hours including coffee afterward. Or we can snorkel for longer and skip it - we are flexible!

I'm a qualified adventure freediver, open water diver and someone who absolutely loves the ocean and its creatures great and small. I have been diving for 15 years and have lived in Cape Town close to our most beautiful sites for 10 years. I work in nature documentaries, and have learned an immense amount about our oceans here in Cape Town through this too. I want to share this treasure with you! The beautiful tidal pools are the best place to start.

Where you'll be

We will explore the tidal pools of Cape Town along the southeast peninsula of False Bay. Each has its own history and all are set in glorious locations along the shore of the Indian Ocean. The finer details are the treasures here. I will guide you to tune in from the wider panorama, to the pool’s locality, to relaxing as you enter the water to take in this peaceful underwater tapestry and its inhabitants.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 7 and up can attend. It's important that you're able to swim, and that you're okay with water temperatures between 14 and 20 degrees celsius - you will be in a full wetsuit with correct thickness ;) In autumn, winter and spring…

What to bring

Towel NB! Water, sunblock, hat, underwater camera, warm clothing layer - the ocean temperature averages between 14 and 20 degrees Celsius. Weatherwise, sometimes you will have four seasons in one day!

More tips

Damaged or lost kit would kindly need to be replaced by yourself. The tidal pools are always beautiful, weather is changeable however. So important to check in with me about what conditions you'd be okay with! Also, there are no showers at the tidal pools. A signed indemnity form will be required.
