Hout Bay is a picturesque fishing port village and the center of the Snooker Barracuda industry and the headquarters of the Lobster Fishing Boats. There is a very early fish market in South Africa on the dock. It is now a distinctive seafood retailer, the “Sailor Wharf”, which still maintains its old appearance. There are restaurants and gift shops near the fish market, where visitors can enjoy hearty seafood lobster meals. Hout Bay is famous for its Seal Island. Seal Island is also a famous tourist attraction in the Cape Peninsula. There are many seals on the island.
