Six of us joined the self guided board walk, The photo in pamphlet is misleading. You can not get up close personal with the seal in the beach. You can only see the seals from far away in the viewing platform due to protective reason....More

Would highly recommend paying for the guided tour onto the beach. The guide was passionate, knowledgeable, and the up-close encounter allowed for excellent photo opportunities. The money is most definitely going to great conservation efforts. We saw researchers walking along the beach and in the...More

We saw the same amount of seals, at a closer distance for free at Kingscote and many other places on the island. Definitely not worth the price to just see them again here. Nothing special
