Just minutes from the city centre lies nature's playground!
Discover the 'real New Zealand' during your 3-hour Seal Coast Safari. To get to the 'Seal Coast' you'll travel through private land, not accessible by the public, where you will see animals including ostriches, goats, deer and wild Kaimanawa horses. Travel along a fault-line, marvel at the snow-capped mountains of the South Island, and take in stunning panoramic views from the highest lookout in Wellington.
Our knowledgeable guides will have lots of stories for you as you drive for 20 rugged kilometers along the beach, over rocks and across small rivers, to Tongue Point - home to a colony of amazing New Zealand fur seals. Enjoy light refreshments with the seals and take in the beauty of their natural habitat, experiencing the crashing waves and the famous Leaning Lighthouse.
On the return journey around the bays, you'll pass the spectacular Red Rocks and Taputeranga Marine Reserve.
Seal Coast Safari has been providing guests with exclusive access to the best coastline in Wellington for over 15 years. A Qualmark endorsed visitor activity with seals guaranteed all year round.
