One of the most interactive wildlife tours you can do!  Come on board our Advanced Eco Certified tour and see why the Australian Sealions are nick-named the ‘puppies of the sea’. 

We at Calypso Star Charters are extremely fortunate to be able to swim with these magnificent animals in their natural habitat. And above all, we can visit four distinct areas. Each area provides a unique snorkelling experience and is a great place to explore.


  • Departs 8 am Check in 7.15 am to 7.45 am
  • Check in Please meet @ the office 3/10  south Quay boulevard

Upon arrival at the island, wetsuits, masks, and snorkels are provided, and we are ready for the most playful swim ever. We operate tenders (small boats) to reduce the swimming and extra safety in the water.  Our crew will be in the water with you at all times.  Once in the water, the sealions entice you to come and play. With summersaults and swirls, they glide effortlessly past.

Sealions are endangered, and our permit is strict.  We are not permitted to be too close to the beach, and at all times we need to remember that they are endangered and we must not approach or intimidate them. After approximately an hour of swimming, it is time to climb back onto the boat. A hot shower awaits, and the coffee machine is ready!

Tours are not operated every day; we limit visiting any specific site to a maximum of four times per week. We are committed to minimizing the impact on the sealion colonies we visit. Please check our calendar for availability or contact our office.
