Snorkelling with seals, allowing them to come up to you and check you out if they fancy it, has to be one of life’s dreams. The first time I jumped off the boat I was with my husband but I couldn’t open my eyes at first, far too scared of what I might see. And then I realised that if I didn‘t open them then I wouldn’t be able to see the seals which would defeat the whole purpose of the trip. So I opened them and saw the beautiful graceful seals, swimming lazily around underneath, popping up for a closer look, before dashing back away into the kelp. Me! Swimming with seals! Out in the open water! And loving it!!! What an incredible experience.
