Dive into clear South Australian waters and swim with Australian sea lions. Our flippered friends are curious, friendly and undeniably cute.
Puppies of the Sea
Sea lions are one of Australia’s most loved animals, affectionately known as puppies of the sea due to their playful nature. South Australia’s beautiful clear waters make it the perfect place to take an ocean dip with a sea lion or two.
An Underwater Adventure
See South Australia’s amazing sea lion population in their natural habitat. On arrival, these curious creatures will come darting over to see who you are and what you look like.
Swimming with sea lions is a must-do experience when visiting the Eyre Peninsula. In the sheltered waters of Baird Bay, Adventure Bay Charters conduct swim tours with these gentle creatures. The sea lions here are wild but not shy, and will come right up to you in the water to play. It’s a truly memorable experience.
Get close to Australian sea lions at Seal Bay on Kangaroo Island. You can walk among them as they lounge on the white sands and surf in the waves.
They are a common sight along Kangaroo Island’s coast. You can also see them at Admirals Arch in Flinders Chase National Park, on the south-west corner of the island.
