Three off us jumped into the cool waters of Baird Bay over the long weekend to swim with the seals and it was worth the numb feet!
After some fairly crappy weather, we managed to pick the sunniest day of the long weekend and were pretty glad to see our tour wasn't cancelled! After suiting up (we had our own wetsuits but wetsuits are provided if you don't have one) we hopped into the cruiser and headed out to the colony. The ride was smooth and Jack and Alan were friendly and knowledgeable guides. We spent quite a lot of time in the water with about 5 playful seals and even had a big bull swim through! The water was a bit murky, but it was great to see the seals playing in the water and watch them relaxing on land.
Unfortunately we couldn't hop in with the dolphins, but there were there on the opposite side of the bay playing in the waves. A hot milo and some biccies were welcomed as was the sun! We were sad to leave and look forward to returning in 2017!
TIPS- take 2 towels (one for the boat and one to dry off back at the house), if it's windy/chilly, socks/shoes and beanie are recommended.
Also, phone service is not the best at Baird Bay so be patient if you can't contact the team straight away.
