Surf­ing seals

Scout Magazine - - Elsewhere... -

Na­ture lovers, take note: The neigh­bour­ing beach of Cape Bridge­wa­ter is home to the only main­land breed­ing colony of seals in Aus­tralia. There are more than 2000 Aus­tralian and long nosed fur seals who call this beau­ti­ful beach home, laz­ing most days on the cape rocks or surf­ing in the waves. Boat tours are avail­able daily or, for those more dar­ing, try a cage div­ing ex­pe­ri­ence – it’s the only place in the world where you can do it! This spot is also fre­quented by hump back and south­ern right whales in the cooler months. It is one of the only places in the world where you can see blue whales from the main­land.
