Adventure Awaits

One of the most incredible and unique experiences you can have in South Australia is this half-day tour to swim with sea lions! These endangered animals are often called the puppies of the sea, with an inquisitive and playful nature that bodes well with human interaction! Watch them bound towards you on the beach, leap and twist out of the water and swim laps around you under the surface.


Day 1:
We begin the day by meeting at Port Lincoln Marina at 7:30 am, or if you need collection, we can arrange a transfer from most accommodation in town. From here, our tour departs at 8:00 am and we begin cruising out along the edge of the Port Lincoln National Park to our destination - Hopkins Island. We serve up morning tea en route the island, a trip which takes around 90 minutes. Our experienced team knows where to moor on the island to get you close to the colony of sea lions and once our crew have fitted you out in the snorkelling gear, you will be able to join them in the water! You get just over an hour to swim and play with these beautiful animals, before jumping back on board for a warm shower and light lunch. The trip returns to Port Lincoln at 12:30 pm in the afternoon.

All that I hoped for and more. Matt and Harley were great - very able and professional, informative, considerate of everybody and very good company. They obviously like what they are doing, know what they are doing and respect both their environment and the wildlife in it. Snorkelling with the Sea lions was just a wonderful experience. A day to remember!
