Get up close with Australia’s endangered Sea Lions as they frolic with glee and play with swimmers on the half day Swim with the Sea Lions Tour at Port Lincoln, South Australia.

Australian Sea Lions are rare and endangered and a spectacular animal full of fun and curiosity. As the boat approaches, they swim with excitement, spinning and twisting and jumping through the water, waiting to meet the people aboard. Their intelligence and natural curiosities mean the Sea Lions love the interaction just as much as people do; and as wild creatures they are able to stay as long as they like to swim alongside the passengers or head off to do their own thing.

This experience voucher is for one adult experience on the half day tour including the swim with the Sea Lions. The tour includes a half day boat tour, all necessary gear such as mask, fins, wetsuit and snorkel. Passengers will be served morning tea, and have access to facilities such as toilet, shower and change room for a completely fun and comfortable boating experience.

The tour departs from Port Lincoln Marina at 8am and returns at Midday and offers a small group experience for the ultimate fun. With a minimum of 4 passengers and maximum of 18, there’s plenty of time to chat with the expert guides as they share their knowledge on the Sea Lions and marine environment.

Passengers are welcome to bring their own underwater camera, or purchase a disposable one on board. There is also an onboard camera, and the staff will be taking photos throughout the trip with all photos being available for download free around a week after the experience.

It’s recommended that passengers bring a warm jacket as it can be cold on the water; along with their swimmers and towel, sunscreen and sunglasses.

The tour operates under Advanced ECO certification; Australia’s highest eco certificate ensuring that the business and all tours operate under strict sustainability guidelines being mindful of impact on the environment and the animals, to minimise this at all times. The swim experience takes place on a natural reserve and respectfully excludes any access to breeding or important areas. Sea Lions usually come within centimetres of swimmers and enjoy playful swimming alongside, although touching is not encouraged out of respect for the animals.
