“Best FREE live seal perfomance ever!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

We arrived at this place at about noon time & it was drizling, cloudy & foggy, so we didn't expect much when we walked through the lookout point. But, wow we were amazed too see large group of seals layed down & playing around on the rocks. It was awesome to get a chance to see these cute creaters living freely and happy. Too bad can't share pictures via this tool.

“A Must See”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The seal colony is a short 10 minute drive from central Westport. It is located at the beautiful Tauranga Bay. Park your car and enjoy a short 5 minute walk. There are always seals basking and sunning themselves on the rocks in a truly beautiful and natural environment. After looking at the seals, drive to the other side of the bay and enjoy a latte at the Bay House Cafe.

“Bring binoculars”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

The place is beautiful an easy to acess but you are a bit too far away from the seals to get a good look at them.

“Nice walk”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Really nice walk from the light house to the seal colony but the seal colony doesn't really worth it if you've already seen sails: they're really far.
