Seal bay is the only place in Australia where visitors can get close to the beach on the beach. The hordes of sea lions lie on the sand on the beach. I guess, seeing this, you must ask me why the Seal Bay is all about sea lions, good question! But I don't know how to answer...
Under the leadership of the staff, I can watch the sea lion's every move. Most of the time, lying on the beach and basking in the sun, occasionally getting up and stretching, playing under the bones, or playing and playing (the two heads are close to the seemingly intimate behavior, actually fighting); The sea lion baby was born shortly after drinking milk; on the hillside not far away, there was a small sea lion looking for her mother. I dont repeat the common sense about sea lions. Actually, I cant say anything...
Seal Bay, the best place to see Australian sea lions on the entire Kangaroo Island, the daily sea lions in Seal Bay are close to 1,000.
Self-driving Kangaroo Island, South Australia, we are here, the weather is not good
After buying the tickets, the attraction management department will arrange a tour group according to the number of tourists. Since the Australian sea lion is a brave animal, there will be a special lecturer. In front of the team, each tour group also has more than 10 people, but the commentator is speaking English, the speed of speech is slightly faster, we Chinese people generally do not understand, but watching the Australian sea lions on the beach is a good The choice, the entire tour can be completed in an hour, the scenery of Seal Bay is also very good, the sea beach, the Australian sea lion.
On a sandy beach, you can even see the skeleton of the largest sea lion, which is a paradise for Australian sea lions.
There are three ways to visit the Seal Bay. One is a distant view of a few hundred meters on the hillside and costs 16. One is a close-up tour of the beach and costs 35. There is also a fixed-date beach sunset. Guided (this kind of time and time, online appointment), cost 60 Australian dollars.
Before heading to the beach for a guided tour, we first went to the 16-dollar free-form path, overlooking the magnificent coastline, especially after I had been driving for 6 hours, I felt tired and felt everything. Worth it.
But wait, say good animals? where? ? ? Ok, my eyes are not good, I dont need to be telephoto, I really cant see clearly. At this moment, I am more fortunate that we have chosen the second tour.
Its fun, were coming at exactly the right time, there are a lot of people in the tour guides, and our shifts have been disguised.
Even more amazing is that you may not know that Seal Bay has no seals, only sea lions!
Maybe it was because the Europeans who came here for the first time were so stupid and confused that they used sea lions as seals? After all, seals and sea lions are too difficult for ordinary people to distinguish.
In fact, there are many reefs outside the bay, which has caused some human fishing vessels with no killings and interests to get close. For many years, they have gradually become a paradise for sea lions.
The Seal Bay Conservation Park is one of the few places in the world where you can stroll between hundreds of rare Australian sea lions as they are lazy on the beach. You can choose to follow the guide to the beach to get close to them and you can see it on the boardwalk. Of course, the charges are different. Personally, it is better to take a closer look. Since 1803, there have been records showing the existence of sea lions. In the first half of the 20th century, because sea lions and fur seals were the favorite bait for sharks, shark boats were able to kill Australian sea lions and New Zealand fur seals arbitrarily, while there were reefs under the sea near Seal Bay, and the sea-going vessels could not get close, so the Australian sea lions were protected from the sea lions. Killing. In 1954, the Seal Bay Waters Reserve was established, and since then, the sea lions on the island have been protected.
