Tour prices and times

Tour fees allow us to invest in ongoing research and conservation efforts. Through these efforts we hope to preserve the natural habitat of this wild Australian sea lion colony for generations to come.

If you’re hoping for a less crowded experience, we recommend you visit before 11 am or after 1 pm.
