Seal Island quota photos

More tourist stuff today with the tourists. Cape Town is full of them.


It was ball-achingly hot again today, so the breeze on the Nauticat boat out to Duiker Island was a great relief. Unsurprisingly, there were seals. Great swathes of them; almost as many as tourists.
The seals along South Africa’s shores eat over 200 000 000 tonnes of fish each year. Want to do something to promote local fish stock sustainability? Kill a seal.
Not really, obviously. That would be a horrible thing to do – although undoubtedly beneficial for the fish.

I would definitely recommend the hour long trip out to Seal Island though. Great fun for adults and kids alike, and good value at R50 and R20 respectively.
