Seal Bay offers one of the most exceptional nature-based experiences in the world. Fees are invested into ongoing research and conservation efforts and through these efforts we hope to preserve the natural habitat of a wild Australian sea lion colony for generations to come. Our tours are designed to suit a wide variety of visitors - you can stay all day if you want to! 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 more about these endangered animals. Visitors given a unique insight into how these endangered animals fish, surf, rest, interact with their pups and defend their territory.If you prefer, you can set your own pace on the wheelchair accessible 300 metre boardwalk which meanders through the dunes to a number of viewing platforms.

After seeing the fur seals at Admirals Arch, my husband and I deliberated if we should even go to Seal Bay. It's a different type of seal here though - Australian Sealions at Seal Bay (NZ fur seals at Admirals Arch). Eventually we chose to...More

To approach wild seals on foot. What an experience. We went with the full guided tour, and in a small group spent some quality time with the seals and their pups. Just watching their behaviour gave us some wonderfully comical and tear jerking moments.
