“Hout Bay began life as a fishing village, and the small harbour is still the focal point. From here you can take a 45 minute boat trip to Seal Island where you'll see a profusion of seals. Take a walk along the beautiful beach and if you're brave have a swim in the chilly water.”

“Fish and chips at Mariner's Wharf Harbour is a must do. Go downstairs to the takeaways place, not upstairs to the restaurant. You'll most likely see a local band playing, locals playing with seals. Take a stroll down the harbour past the fishing boats. ”

“Nauticat or Calypso will take you on an amazing tour to Seal Island, where you will see them frolicking in the water. This is a "must see" in Hout Bay, it is inexpensive and lasts only 45 minutes. After that catch an amazing lunch at the Harbour, The Lookout, or Mariners Warf.”
