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.

Great guided tour to see the Sea Lions (not Seals). Our guide Don was clearly an old hand who got us close (but not too much) from these 350kg titans who were far more interested in mating than us. Don addressed the key questions on...More

By paying for a guided tour of Seal Bay, you get to go down on to the beach within 15 metres of the sealions and fur seals. It is a brilliant photo opportunity and the guides have the answers to all your questions as well...More

At $35 per adult we were wondering if we should take the tour. It was 45 minute tour after which we could wander along the board walks to viewing platforms to see the seals. We decided to take the guided tour along the beach near...More

We visited Seal Bay and did the tour on a cold and raining morning. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. The proximity to these beautiful creatures was very close and we totally enjoyed this experience.

Interactions were limited by distance to the animals for their protection. Many seals present, males, cows and younger ones.

Amazing Experience to watch great creatures who were very active. After few photographs we sat on the steps to enjoy the view. Tips for travelers: Sit and enjoy the view. Spend more time looking at the Sea lions than taking photographs

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".

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
