Swimming with Seals: One for the Bucket List
We all have a list of things we’d like to see and do while on this amazing adventure called life and swimming with seals should be one everyone’s bucket list. Montague Island is home to many species of seal and the best times to experience this is between the months of November and April, when the waters are alive with the graceful movements of these happy-go-lucky marine animals.
Half Day Experience
When you go seal swimming at Narooma, you will be swimming in clear blue waters and the seals are naturally inquisitive and will approach. You will, of course, be in the water with experienced guides, with the boat close by; safety is obviously a concern and when you book a local seal swimming tour, you are in good hands. If you are lucky and the weather conditions are calm, this enhances the experience, while you can also try your hand with underwater photography with a little preparation. For more details, search online for a leading tour operator of swimming with seal tours and when your dates are confirmed, you can book your spot on the boat and get ready for an unforgettable experience.
Health & Safety
Prior to making a booking to swim with seals, you should check regarding the current Covid status to ensure that it is safe to travel and the crew are fully aware of all safety requirement when in the water with passengers. There is more information regarding health and safety on the tour operator’s website, plus you can learn about the clothing to wear and what to bring. If you are unsure about seasickness, you are advised to take some medication on the morning of the excursion.
The more you know about seals, the richer the experience will be and a couple of hours Googling seals and their behaviour would give you that extra knowledge. It can feel a little intimidating when you are first in the water with seals, but they have no bad intentions when it comes to humans, indeed, they are more than a little curious. It is very common for a seal to select a human play partner and stick with them for quite a while and these amazing animals are very intelligent and glide through the water gracefully.
As November approaches, now is the perfect time to book your swimming with seals experience, which will be something you’ll never forget!
