Seal Bay offers one of the most exceptional nature-based experiences in the world. Fees are invested into ongoing research and conservation efforts and through these efforts we hope to preserve the natural habitat of a wild Australian sea lion colony for generations to come. Our tours are designed to suit a wide variety of visitors - you can stay all day if you want to! There are no enclosures or cages at Seal Bay. Instead, you will be taken into the heart of the colony where our experienced guides will teach you more about these endangered animals. Visitors given a unique insight into how these endangered animals fish, surf, rest, interact with their pups and defend their territory.If you prefer, you can set your own pace on the wheelchair accessible 300 metre boardwalk which meanders through the dunes to a number of viewing platforms.

We were a little bit oversold by the tourist office who seem to think the visit was "freer" in fact were watchfully herded. Sill enjoyed the tour but would no call it an "experience".

Well worth the beach tour to see these seals. Get up close & watch them playing/fighting/relaxing. Guide was knowledgeable & friendly.

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
