Seal Coast Safari

Seal Coast Safari – Wellington Tours offers exclusive tours to Wellington’s rugged coast line, offering sublime views, exclusive access to private farm land, and the chance to encounter New Zealand fur seals up close and personal. Come and enjoy the best Wellington has to offer, and have a cup of coffee and gourmet muffin with the seals, whilst taking in the true beauty of Wellington.

Seal Coast safari is also the recipient of Trip advisors certificate of excellence award and highly ranked as one of Wellingtons best outdoor activities...and it’s no surprise why.  We are also a Qualmark endorsed activity, meaning Tourism New Zealand ranks the tour with an official mark of quality.

Our drivers and the tour itself is what makes us different, we pride ourselves on offering an authentic and unique experience. Come take a trip with us off the beaten track, with Seal Coast Safari guiding you to the best scenery in Wellington for over 17 years.

The Tour

  • Our tour begins by going up the Brooklyn Hill to a wind turbine where guests can take in the great views of the city, the Cook Strait and the South Island.
  • From there we then travel through the hills of private farmland towards Wellington’s south coast. 
  • On this private farmland you can encounter a number of animals including, goats, Red Deer and ostriches! (They can be shy so we can't guarantee!).
  • Once on the coast, we drive along the beaches and stop to view (from a distance) the famous Leaning Lighthouse where we stop for a tea, coffee and a gourmet muffin with the seals.
  • We offer these 3-hour Safaris in both the morning and afternoon – the morning Safari leaves at 10.00am and the afternoon Safari leaves at 1.30pm.
