Seal Landing

It is unusual to get a close view of seals, as offshore islands are their preferred breeding grounds. A colony of Cape fur seals are however a familiar sight resting on the specially build seal landing behind the Two Oceans Aquarium and on old tyres lining the quaysides around the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
