“Very nice waterfall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

We went very early in the morning in January so there wasn't any seal pups on the track however the waterfall is awesome and well worth the walk. There were hundreds of seals on view from where we parked the car and we spent a good half an hour watching the seal pups play tag whilst the older ones looked on wondering where they get the energy from

“South Islands best kept secret!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

One of the best places in NZ to get so close to seal pups. Seals pups in every direction and watching them play in the waterfalls was the highlight. A must visit location.

“Amazing opportunity to get close to wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Incredibly cute seal pups in every direction, easy to walk to and to make a change from most seal encounters they didn't stink! Well worth a stop and some great photo opportunities.
