Journey out to Wellington’s south coast, looking out over the Cook Strait, and visit the region’s only fur seal colony. Journey out to Karori Rock’s ‘leaning lighthouse’ to meet this thriving community of once-endangered critters. Tea, coffee and snacks are provided so you can relax and watch the seals in this isolated area that even many Wellingtonians don't know about.

Great views, loved seeing the seals
We had great fun on this tour. Miles, our driver, was lovely and always had us laughing. He was unbelievably skilled at maneuvering the Jeep, and even drove us through a small river. The seals were adorable as well! Thank you to Miles.
