Cape Fur Seals
On trips with Ocean Blue Adventures we always see the Cape Fur Seals, either swimming out in the bay looking for food, or at their colony at Robberg Peninsula. We are lucky to have seals around in Plettenberg Bay throughout the year, since all animals were hunted out in the beginning 1900’s. At that point there were two colonies in Plettenberg Bay, one at Beacon Island and one at the Point of Robberg. The existing colony is located along the north side of Robberg and started to have animals in the 1900’s. It had grown in size since then, and got calssified as a breeding population in 2013 due to the fact that more than 100 pups were born in the breeding season 2012-2013.
