Swim with Sea Lions

Witnessing the rare and endangered Australian Sea Lions in their natural habitat is one of the most life-enhancing experiences. The inquisitive, gentle nature of these stunning sea creatures is unparalleled in the underwater world.

Your day, swimming with the sea lions

Set off on a half-day tour to the crystal clear waters of Seal Cove, where the gorgeous puppies of the sea welcome your arrival as they bound toward the boat with their unmistakable glee and excitement; performing somersaults and graceful swirls, inviting you to join in!

The gentlest of underwater mammals, Sea Lions love to play, and that indeed they do! After watching their leaps and twists out of the water, and show-off back-flips you will definitely experience the joy they get from swimming with you – and you with them!

So if you’re keen to experience the Australian Sea Lion’s underwater playground, by all means visit our bookings page to check out our next availability!
