Welcome to Seal Bay
The stunning views of the Australian sea lion colony and the neighbouring coastline make Seal Bay an essential experience for visitors to Kangaroo Island
With its unspoiled wilderness and stunning beauty, it is no surprise that Kangaroo Island (KI) is consistently in South Australia’s top ten tourist destinations, as voted on Trip Advisor. And no trip to KI is complete without a visit to Seal Bay.
Seal Bay has been home to an Australian sea lion population for thousands of years, and offers one of the most exceptional nature-based experiences in the world.
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 about these endangered animals. If you prefer, you can set your own pace on the wheelchair accessible 900 metre (return) boardwalk which meanders through the dunes to a number of viewing platforms.
A visit to Seal Bay gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the beautiful surrounds of this colony – white sands, blue skies, unspoiled vistas – to learn about the endangered sea lions from our very experienced guides, at a safe distance.
