What people are saying about Garden Route

We came across the tour quite by accident and it was more than worth it. Our guide Ryn explained a lot about animals and their habitat, showed us a lot in the water (how the animals react when to which movements) and made great pictures. We had bad luck with the weather and the water was very cold despite the wetsuit but everything else was great. PS: the seals stink extremely .. haha

really fun experience. staff were really friendly, the boat ride was fun and interacting with the seals was great.
