Things to Do in Mossel Bay, South Africa

Mossel Bay Things to Do

Mossel Bay is a harbor town located in South Africa that has increasingly become an important tourist destination. Visitors to the area will find many things to do as they tour its many attractions.

Ocean Activities

Ocean living dominates the area. Diaz Beach is a very long stretch of beach with life guards during both the weekends and holidays. Because it’s not as rocky as other beaches in the area, it’s a great spot to learn to surf. In fact, there are many things to do on the ocean. Diving is a very popular activity in the area, and there are multiple companies that will take you out on the ocean for a dip.

There are a few operators that organize trips to Seal Island to watch the seals. During the whale season, there are also whale watching trips. Throughout the year, there’s always the chance of seeing dolphins.

For the slightly braver individual, there’s also cage diving. White Shark Africa is the only cage diving company in Mossel Bay that is allowed to cage dive around Seal Island. Sharks are only there during the winter months, so it’s best to go diving at that time. The company will try its best to help you find a shark regardless of the time of year, although the chances are best during the winter season.
