Sea Lion Tours operate all year round!
We depart from the Jurien Bay Boat Harbour where you can find our vessels ‘Mojo’ and ‘Sound Waves’ parked up on the floating pontoon down from the information bay.
Tours generally depart at 7.30 am from the Marina and return no later than 10 am depending on which island we visit and the ocean conditions on the day.
The Marina offers plenty of parking for any size vehicles and bathroom/change room facilities including a hot shower for after your tour.
We ask passengers to arrive approximately 15 minutes before departure for wetsuit fittings and a safety talk before departing.
Depending on which island we visit the boat trip takes between 10 to 30 minutes one way.
During the boat trip we often see dolphins and bird life and you will get time to meet and talk with other passengers or sit back and relax and save your energy.
Once at the island we anchor the boat and generally the sea lions come out to play straight away. We usually interact with the sea lions for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours or until they get bored of us.
While snorkelers are in the water, we can have a staff member guiding or helping with anyone’s needs, whilst the other crew member keeps watch from the boat. All staff are qualified in senior first aid.
We try to mix up our tours and no two trips are the same, however we can guarantee you will get to experience the sea lions in their natural habitat which is how all great eco tours should be.
