No I don’t know his real name, but I am going to call him Sam. Why? Because I can. Anyway, Sam has been living in Kalk Bay Harbour for many years. He is probably one of the most photographed seals in Cape Town, and he loves posing for the tourists.
When he gets tired of the attention he waddles over to the harbour wall and jumps over into the sea for a refreshing dip. If you want to see him yourself just head on over to Kalk Bay harbour and there is a pretty good chance you will see him basking in the sun.
