Tour prices and times

Due to recent bushfire activity on Kangaroo Island, we have made some changes to our summer touring schedule. Seal Bay will open at 9:00am and our last tour of the day will be at 4:00pm. Gates close at 5pm. We will run tours regularly throughout the day and run additional tours on demand. We appreciate your understanding and support. 

Tour fees allow us to invest in ongoing research and conservation efforts. Through these efforts we hope to preserve the natural habitat of this wild Australian sea lion colony for generations to come.

All tours can be purchased at the Seal Bay Visitor Centre, or as part of a Kangaroo Island Parks Pass. Please note we do not accept advanced bookings, simply arrive at our Visitor Centre and we will book you on the next available tour. If you arrive early you are welcome to wander the boardwalk while you wait. 

If you’re hoping for a less crowded experience, we recommend you visit before 11 am or after 1 pm.

Guided tours are subject to a minimum number of participants. Extreme weather conditions may affect tour access and duration.
