- Watch sea lions showing off in the sea
- Swim alongside the beautiful, curious creatures
- Stunning underwater viewing and guaranteed interaction
If you’re a nature-lover then you’ll go overboard for this Australia gift experience, literally. Take a sailing trip to Seal Cove off the coast of Port Lincoln in South Australia to join some cute sea lions, often known as ‘puppies of the sea’ for their friendly and playful behaviour. The boat has a large glass viewing pod in the hull seating up to six people, so the 360-degree views underwater are magnificent. Along the way, an interesting commentary unfolds from the expert crew, explaining about life for sea lions in these crystal-clear waters.
You’ll next have the opportunity to swim alongside the sea lions, and all the equipment, from wetsuits to snorkels and masks, are provided. You’ll find that the sea lions love having a bit of company in the water and will happily swim all around you, though they’ll zip away if you try to stroke them. Seeing these amazing animals in their pristine natural habitat, and getting in amongst them, is an incredible experience that will stay with you for years to come. Multiple stops mean that sea lion encounters are guaranteed.
