Connect with 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, in powerful, off-road vehicles.

See animals including ostriches, & often wild goats, & marvel at the snow-capped mountains of the South, wind turbines & views of Wellington.

Stories abound as we drive for 20 kilometres along the beach to Tongue Point – home to a colony of amazing NZ fur seals. Enjoy tea, coffee & a muffin with the seals & take in the beauty of their natural habitat, experiencing the crashing waves & the famous Leaning Lighthouse.

Seal Coast Safari has been providing guests with exhilarating access to the best scenery in Wellington for over 15 years.
