This beach attracts a large number of sea lions to rest and relax after fishing in the great southern Ocean. The sanctuary is well laid out with guides to take you down to the beach or walkways for less mobile viewers. The sealions come up...More

Enjoyed this tour. Only 2 of us on this one, the guide very informative, the seals very active and up close. Plenty of time for photo opportunities, well worth the visit. Scenery was beautiful

This is a fantastic attraction which provides close up viewing of a large Australian sea lion colony as they go about their daily activities. The boardwalk to the viewing platform covers some distance but even those of limited fitness can use it provided they take...More

I decided not to take in this experience as the cost was prohibitive for just a walk along a beach to see sea lions. I can see them in NZ for free.

Our one day Kangaroo Island Experience tour provided us with an excellent guided tour of the Seal Bay sea lion colony. We were required to keep a respectful distance from these magnificent animals but still managed to be close enough to see the beautiful interaction...More

You can get quite close the sea lions, 10 metre's or so. You'll smell them before you see them, although thay do head up into the dunes a fair distance. Also look out for the whale skeleton.

This location lived up to our expectations. There was many seals to be seen and also a whale skeleton which was pretty awesome. We spent ages photographing the seals and the landscape. Well worth it and the staff are super friendly.

It's great to walk on the beach and to spot their hiding spots in the dunes. The wild status of these animals is valued here by maintaining a strict distance allowed, so don't expect any photos of you next to a seal. A great opportunity...More

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

Sie sind anscheinend noch nicht lange in Australien, sonst hätten Sie festgestellt, dass 16 Dollar pro Person vergleichsweise günstig ist. Ansonsten verstehe ich Ihr Problem nicht, das sind wilde Tiere, die man schützen will und vor denen man den Mensch, respektive den Besucher schützen will.

Das Schöne an dieser Plattform ist, dass jeder seinen ganz persönlichen Eindruck niederschreiben darf. Meiner war so wie beschrieben und glauben Sie mir ... ich stehe sehr auf Tier- und Naturschutz!
