Observe the seals without getting your face wet! 🙂
If you would like to join our Seal & Ocean Expedition to see the beautiful coastline of Tasman National Park with its abundant wildlife and the seals up close but aren’t too keen to jump in the water, you’re welcome to come as an ‘observer’.
Besides super cute seals and other wildlife that we come across on the day, we will show you some amazing caves, sea stacks and cliff formations. At the seal colony, you can recharge with homemade tea and biscuits.
The tour includes:
- 3 to 4-hour scenic boat trip & wildlife watching
- Watch seals close-up on the rocks and in the water
- Small groups of max. 12 people
- USB thumb drive with photos and videos
- Yummy vegan (cruelty-free) treats, mmhm!
- Toilet facilities on board
- A passionate crew who can’t wait to share this amazing place with you
- Detailed interpretation of coastline & wildlife in English and German
- Donation towards our wildlife conservation projects
- See the baby wallabies that we raise after being orphaned (animals health permitting)
Departures: Sun – Fri, October – June, at 9 am @ the Wild Ocean Tasmania HQ, depending on weather and ocean conditions. (Additional departure times during the high season).
Wild Ocean TasmaniaWild Ocean Tasmania is a small, couple-owned & operated business.
The idea of WOT evolved through our passion for the Ocean, wildlife and the ecosystem that supports us.
Our aim is to reconnect people with our natural environment and to raise understanding for the value of protecting the worlds coastal zones.
We are at a time in history in which we are witnessing the collapse of whole ecosystems. Many species become extinct every single day.
Social FocusWe use part of our profit to raise and rehabilitate native wildlife in our free time and to donate to local wildlife carers. After our Seal & Ocean Expedition, our guests usually get to see one of our wildlife orphans (animals health permitting) and learn about roadkill in Tasmania.
On our journey, we discovered that one cannot be an ‘environmentalist’ and consume animal products at the same time, since animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector, let alone the deforestation, water usage and animal cruelty. Therefore, we only serve vegan food and drinks on our tours.
Our office is set in a recycled, 100% solar powered shipping container. We consciously chose to run Honda motors (leader in environmentally responsible technology). Our carbon emissions are offset with 20 acres of biodiverse Tasmanian forest that also provides habitat for native wildlife.
Our boat tours are single-use plastic free. We regularly pick up plastic, fishing gear and other human-caused debris out of the Ocean.
Most importantly, we take our guests to stunning natural sites that can only be reached by boat and encourage an ethical interaction with the precious marine life we encounter in the hope to raise awareness for the importance of the protection of these amazing animals, our natural environment and ultimately ourselves.
