Wellington Seal Colony Tour

by Wellington Nature Tours Duration 3h Non-refundable No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$121

Half Day tour of Wellington’s extraordinary natural flora and fauna including a visit to Tongue Point Seal colony. The wild forces of nature all collide within Wellington’s dramatic landscape. It is home to mythical beasts, is the source of wondrous legends, and has been ravaged by earthquakes and cyclones.

Before we get to the seals, the tour departs from central Wellington and we travel past some of the city’s most famous icons on our way to the suburb of Karori and soon leave the city limits and drive through a real slice of rural New Zealand.

Enjoy an exhilarating journey through Terawhiti Station to the dramatic Seal Coast south of the city. Home of New Zealand’s most modern wind farm, Terawhiti Station is also a working beef and sheep farm. As we drive through the farm we discuss the history of farming and electricity generation in the area. We will drive you across a live active fault line, over rocky beach front and around headlands to visit a colony of Wild New Zealand Fur seals. The views on this tour are exceptional – weather permitting, you’ll see the Tasman Sea meet the Pacific Ocean, the tumultuous waters of Cook Strait separating the North and South Islands, and the distant mountain ranges of the South Island.

Fur Seals are at the colony all year round, but peak Seal numbers are May ~ August. The farm is a working farm, so the animals we see will depend on time of year.
