Seals by the sea is a wonderful trip on amazing bridge water bay. A easy 10minute stroll to catch the boat is a lovely chance to Check out the surrounds. The skipper is very informative And once you arrive at the entrance to the cave you are welcomed by hundreds of seals. The seals frolic around the boat for lots of photos. It's then a quick ride back to the jetty. The Bridgewater cafe is a welcome spot to enjoy fish and chips overlooking the Bay. A must do in the Portland area.

Took my two boys (9 and 12) on the tour in January and we had an absolute blast. Whilst we loved getting up close and personal with the Australian and NZ fur seals, it was the high speed rubber-ducky that really put a smile on our faces. Our guide took us just beyond the breakers to watch a massive rock shelf become exposed as the waves receded creating a magnificent waterfall- hard to describe, but quite an extraordinary experience. We then headed out to sea in search of dolphins gliding over massive swells. The water is amazingly clear - our guide explained it's due to the minerals thrown up by the Bonney Upwelling that act as cleaning agents for the water. We didn't find any dolphins so we headed in. Was very impressed with our guide's knowledge of the local geology and wildlife. Don't miss this trip if you are in the area.
