Seal Bay Conservation Park, Seal Bay
(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.

  • The conservation park is very nice and provides a wonderful experience to get the animals close to. However, it is difficult that one can not large remove the group.

  • Nice place to observe seals! You can do a selfgided walk with a guide or go along the beach on. We did the ' Boardwalk tour without a guide. Very nice and informative!

  • The guidance was good and fun. We ran came up to 5 metres on the seals. The location is beautiful if too windy. In total it took about 30 minutes, then we had to leave also the place because it was the last tour before 5: 00. We had can come but again the next day at no additional cost. On the boardwalks you can get close to the seals and can take good photos. However, the price to 35 AD during a guided tour is significantly too high for me. Since approaches but similar to close in Flinders Chase on other seals and get a lot more for less money overall. Here, one has only the seals. Other correspondents on Kangaroo Iceland offer more for me.

  • 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.
