Overview

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.

Loved our morning swim with seals & dolphins. It surpassed all our expectations & the loving rapport Alan & Mick have with these animals makes it memorable. A must do when you’re nearby.

We spent a wonderful morning visiting and swimming with dolphins and seals. To be a part of their environment was magical. Looked after so well by the Eco team. Definitely worth the 10 hour drive to get there. We will be back
