(4.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Home to the third largest sea lion colony in Australia, Seal Bay Conservation Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Kangaroo Island, offering a rare nature-based experience with no enclosures or cages confining the animals. Experienced guides can take you into the heart of the sea lion colony, where you can learn how these endangered creatures fish, surf, rest, interact with their pups, and defend their territory. To protect the precarious colony, visitors can visit the beach, where the sea lions rest with their young, as part of a guided tour only. You can take unguided walks along the park's boardwalk at any time.

  • What fun with Luca popped on the beach and we were really close! The Lions obviously slept like all Australian animals of course!

  • We loved this. Yes it's a little expensive at $35 each BUT what an experience! Felt like we were in the middle of a David Attenborough documentary! 
  • Well worth it as a place to see, spending some time watching these rare Aussie sea lions. Went as part of a tour but probably wouldn't think $16.- entrance fee value for money if went as an individual...  more »

  • Went as part of the Sealink day tour. It was great to see the seals up close in their natural habitat. Would definitely recommend anyone to come visit seal bay.
  • Great guided tour with tanya. We were really close to the seals and we got a lot of interesting informartions!
  • Went for the guided tour with a nice lady which was able to make it in French. Learned a lot about those amazing creature and could see them playing, fighting, and mostly sleeping from very close. Also went on the board walk which allows to see the animals close, great for people with a smaller budget.
  • The seals are just great...the tour is rather on the pricy side (35$) and not many new information.
  • One of the "Must go" for the island. You will get less than 10metres from the seal.
