Why do we love this
We love that this tour gives you the chance to meet rare Australian Sea Lions! How special is that?
WHAT TO EXPECT
Do you like puppies? Then you’re going to love the Australian sea lion! Nicknamed the “puppy dogs of the sea", these amazing animals are some of the most remarkable creatures in Australia. This tour is a unique opportunity to encounter this rare creature in its natural habitat. An awesome underwater adventure where you’ll get up and close with the sea lions, this is a trip you can't miss.
The Australian sea lion is a rare and endangered animal that can only be found on specific islands in Western and Southern Australia. With an estimated total population of just 14,730 individuals, you're extremely lucky to be able to see them in Port Lincoln. Because of these low numbers, the Australian Government is taking special measures to make sure the sea lions are protected, so don’t worry, these gorgeous animals are well taken care of!
Your water adventure starts at Adventure Bay Charters Office (2 South Quay Boulevard, Port Lincoln Marina) at 7.30 am for an 8.00 am departure. Free return transfer is available from selected locations (see below) and for all other locations, it is $10 per person return.
From the marina, sail to Seal Cove which is where the sea lions live. From the boat, take photos of the beautiful scenery in the area and enjoy the ocean views. There are toilets onboard as well as changing rooms and a hot a shower. Just what you want after your upcoming swim!
As you approach Seal Cove, keep your eyes out for the friendly sea lions. These guys are known for being circus artists and they love performing their favourite tricks for guests. As soon as they see the boat approaching, they swim out to say hello!
Then, it's time for the best part of the tour. Put on your swimsuit and jump in, ready for an underwater experience you’ll never forget. Once in the water, you can swim and snorkel around the sea lions. They’ll put on an amazing show full of somersaults and graceful swirls – don’t forget to applaud!
If all this fun makes you hungry, you can buy a selection of drinks and light snacks on board. And if you just can’t get enough of the cutest sea lions on the planet, there's also merchandise available.
This is a half-day tour, starting at 7.30 am and returning to Port Lincoln Marina at 12.30 pm.
