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.

a must do if you are traveling to Eyre Peninsula! Friendly staff, and even more friendly and playful sea lions. We got to hang out with the dolphins for a good while as well! Water is a bit cold at the moment, bring a towel!

This is well worth the drive to Baird Bay, what I love most about this experience is the love and care shown to the seals and the hope that you will care about them too. The seals are not trained, fed or bribed to swim with you, you are simply in their play pool and you are

Today we drove more than three hours from our accommodation near Port Lincoln to remote Baird Bay (no 4WD necessary) hoping we would be fortunate enough to swim with even a single dolphin or sea lion. Alan and Mick were experienced, knowledgeable and crackling with down to
