Hi Gayle, Very happy to hear you enjoyed yourself! The ride out can be quite bumpy, but that's all part of the experience of seeing these creatures in their natural habitat. Some of the seals can grow up to 2m and 150kg, so they're pretty big, but as you found out, also quite docile. They mainly just don't like being woken up. Which I'm sure we can all relate to. Thanks, Flat Earth NZ Experiences

Hi US1951CA, Thanks for your review. I'm glad we could leave a positive impression on you even after so many miles of travelling! We like to take people into the lesser known parts of Wellington on some of our tours and offer unique experiences like this. All our guides have been brought on board with a respect for the land they live on, and the nature that provides so much beauty all around us. Phoning ahead is also appreciated so we can iron out any details regarding pick ups etc. Thanks, Flat Earth NZ Experiences
