We look forward to welcoming you to Seal Bay!

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 the Australian sea lion. There is nowhere else in the world where you can listen to an expert give you their unique insight into how these endangered animals hunt, surf, rest, interact with their pups and defend their territory.

This is a 45 minute walking tour you’ll follow a boardwalk through the dune system to the beach, and on the way you will have breathtaking views of the colony and the majestic coastline.

Our guides have made studying the magnificent Australian sea lion their life’s work. A guided beach tour does not follow a standardised script. Instead your guide will be interpreting sea lion behaviour and what’s happening in the colony – at that very moment. They’ll make sure everyone is safe and keep you at an appropriate distance (no closer than 10 metres), making sure the sea lions do not feel threatened by human presence.

This is a truly exceptional wildlife experience not to be missed. The fee for the Seal Bay Experience also includes access to the boardwalk so you are able to see everything Seal Bay has to offer
