Early summer marks the start of the breeding season of the Australian fur seal. Female seals (cows) are due to give birth to a single pup from early November with peak pupping season being around mid December. There were an estimated 3,000 pups born last year! Last year’s pups are now fending for themselves and finding their own tasty fish, squid and octopus, and spending lots of time in the water. Male seals (bulls) have arrived to Seal Rocks to claim their breeding territory, showing dominant behaviour and aggression. Plenty of action to see on your next Seal Watching Cruise!
The annual Shearwater Festival is back and we have scheduled our popular Shearwater Twilight Cruises on Nov 25 & 26, as we witness thousands of these amazing birds return to their rookeries amongst the spectacular cliffs of Cape Woolamai from the comfort of the Kasey Lee.
