Surrounded by the South Atlantic Ocean, the Seal Island derives its name from the abundance of the Cape Fur Seals frolicking on the granite landform. Being uninhabited by the mankind, the Seal Island is a safe abide to the seals who consider the island as their breeding ground. While watching the seals in their natural behaviour, you will also find the Great White Sharks forming Ring of Death to devour the seals swimming too far. Encompassing only 2 hectares, the island is home to over sixty-four thousand seals, seabirds and migratory birds. The long and narrow cape granite rises only 4-6 metres over the high tidal mark. Neither vegetation nor urban touch is seen here, but ruins of the scrap metal and huts can be found around.
