Seal Island

Drumbeat Charters has been operating since 1989 and is based in the famous fishing village of Hout Bay offering daily scenic cruises to one of Cape Town’s main attractions.
Join our boat cruise to Duiker Island to see thousands of Cape Fur Seals in their natural environment and some of the most spectacular scenery the Cape Peninsula has to offer.
Our vessel Drumbeat II is licensed to carry 118 passengers and has two toilets and a licensed bar on board.
While aboard you are surrounded with breath-taking scenery of the famous Chapmans Peak Drive and the Sentinel Mountain.
Drumbeat caters for local and international clients and has information leaflets about the seals available in 26 different languages.
Our boat is available for Private Charters throughout the year. Take a look at some of our suggested itineraries.
Join us on our 1 hour special to the ‘Seals & The Shipwreck‘ where you’ll visit Duiker Island home of the Cape Fur Seals and then travel further along the Kabonkelberg Mountain range to Moari Bay to view the Shipwreck of the Bos 400 which ran aground in 1994 in one of our Cape winter storms.
