Description: Having a Freedom Day bask or a frolic in the breakers, seals are a feature of Mossel Bay's marine environment and always entertaining to watch. Of course they live dangerously being a favourite snack of great whaite sharks circling Seal Island. Recently a couple of pups and even adults were washed up, alas not alive and the one adult was totally skinned.
