“Great stop to check out the seals”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Really enjoyed seeing the seals in their natural habitat rather than a zoo.. Its a short journey from Westport and worth the trip

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Excellent graded track, fantastic views, seal lookouts, places in the grass for picnics. A strong person could push a wheelchair up the track. For more picnic spots and viewpoints you can carry on past the seals. There might even be a weka or two to feed at beginning of track.

“Brilliant walk and viewing”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

this is an awesome gentle walk up to the seals, if you want you can keep strolling along the magnificent pathway. It is no cost and a great walk, just along the bay a cafe you can sit at and continue to enjoy the magnificent scenery

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

A short drive from Cape Foulwind you will find a seal colony basking on the rocks and going for the occasional dip. Some seal pups diving into the rough surge made me giggled as they played. A 1km walk from the car ark to the seals along an easy track made it worth it.
