Thoroughly recommend driving out to see this Park. We were lucky and had awesome weather and therefore there was lots of seals to see. We just did the lookout and boardwalk but it was worth the money. Staff were really friendly and informative.

Totally breathtaking! Seals frolicking everywhere. Highly informative displays. Great people guiding you. Please play by the rules and don’t disturb the seals who are sleeping. This is a God-given opportunity.

Had a guided tour, it was amazing to see seals everywhere, even under the paths! You learn so much about the seals. We had a seal pup come up to us and go between the group! Such an amazing experience!

We took a 10 year old and an 18month old child (in a carry back pack) on our tour (only paid for the 10 year old). Also on the tour was another child who I assume was age 2 or 3. We saw children of all ages leaving on tours... More
