Cape Cross

At Cape Cross, one of the largest colonies of Cape Fur Seals braves the harsh conditions of the southern Atlantic Ocean.  At any given time, over 100,000 fur seals can be found at the colony.  Pupping season is November-December, so luckily there were thousands of playful, inquisitive four-month-old seal pups around for our visit.

Roughly 100,000 cape fur seals live in the seal colony at Cape Cross.

Hundreds of seals brave the surf, coming in and out of the cold, rough Atlantic Ocean to forage for fish and shellfish.
