Just park your car, get out and take close pictures of fur seals.

“Watch those rocks”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

Didn't think there were any seals until I nearly stepped on one, they just sleep anywhere and look like the rocks. Great place to take the kids

“Unique experience. Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

Tread carefully, we came across a sleeping seal on the boardwalk! A lovely thing to do, and it's free! Quite busy with tourists, but most people were respectful of the seals and kept their distance.
