The entire island is accessible by 4WD and, at just 5 miles long and 1.5 miles at its widest, it is possible to explore much of what the island has to offer on foot, so guests are free to organize their day as they wish.

Walking on Sea Lion Island is easy going and guests can find all manner of whale and seal bones on the beaches, as well as debris from shipwrecks.

With a resident population of just 7, guests at the lodge can expect to have the entire island to themselves.

Eco-tourism
The Lodge
Sea Lion Lodge strives to be as environmentally friendly as possible given its remote position. Its main achievement has been the use of solar panels for heating water.

Conservation
Fortunately, Sea Lion Island is free from introduced predators such as cats, rats and mice which would otherwise threaten the many varieties of ground nesting birds on the island. The island has also been designated as a National Nature Reserve and as a Ramsar Site (The International Convention for the Protection of Wetlands, particularly as habitat for waterfowl).

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
