We had a tour with a ranger and it was fascinating to hear about the sea lions. Being there in the spring was especially fun because we got to see all the babies serious cuteness overload. This is a conservation park so you can't get...More
We visited this park and it was terrific.
We viewed an entire colony of Seals. There are two options. One is to walk down to the beach to see them close up and the other option is to stand on a landing tower. We had...More
The place is very well organized. It has a ticket office building with introductory exhibition about the seals. It also has well established souvenir shop. There is an easy boardwalk to the beach platforms where seals can be observed. There are also stairs down to...More
We used the boardwalk to get down close to the sea lions. How fantastic was that. Seeing the calves and their mums at close quarters (some less than 5 m) from the baordwalk was a brilliant experience. The board walk was accessible, allowing wheelchair access,...More

We took the self guided walk and could see plenty of seals on the beach below, as well as a number sleeping in the sand dunes along the way. The board walk is pretty easy going with places to sit and rest or look at the scenery. There is still a charge to enter the national park but we decided to skip the extra cost as we had visited the bay some years ago before the site was manned.
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
