About Baird Bay Ocean Eco Experience
Baird Bay Ocean Eco Experience is a marine experience, once done, you will never forget. None of the marine mammals of Baird Bay have ever been fed, nor have they been enticed in any other way. The interaction is entirely of their choosing and will remain so. Not everyday is perfect, the conditions are wild and free. We give it our best shot for an incredible interaction to happen for you with either the sea lions or dolphins, or at its very best both these beautiful marine mammals on the one tour. No guarantees are promised, but in saying that, we can guarantee the least that will happen, is, you will see the sea lions up close and personal.

Baird Bay is a beautiful out of the way spot that hides a wonderful secret. You can spend a morning not too far from the beach swimming with dolphins and sea lions. This really is an amazing experience. Allan provides all the kit you need and the sealions and dolphins do the

An absolutely amazing experience! Being so close to the sea lions and interacting with them in their environment was truly special. They were at ease with us and didn’t hesitate getting close to you. Alan and Trish were very friendly and welcoming. Assisted in the water at all

Response from Alan P, Owner at Baird Bay Ocean Eco Experience
Responded 13 Sep. 2019
Thanks to you and all the other recent comments. It makes our day if the tour makes yours. We should have a really good time this year as all last season's Sea Lion pups are out and about and looking for entertainment. And that's what we are, their entertainment. We have already noticed some who are really outgoing and like to be up close and in the mix, and our favourites from previous seasons are still out and about and that gives the younger ones the confidence to come and play. And the Dolphins have been exceptional so far, they are always happy to play at this time of year, the youngest one in the pod is playing a lot with his uncle(Firefox), so those of you who have been on the tour will know what an amazing Dolphin he is, I'm sure he thrives on entertaining the swimmers. So all is looking good for this season, and thank you for your comments.

Fantastic day! Our daughters, 9 &10, we're a bit nervous at first but we're soon swimming confidently alongside the sealions. The staff were informative, were constantly looking out for our safety and obviously genuinely loved what they were doing. Such a great group! Would
