Ohau Point Seal Colony


State Highway 1, Ohau Point, Kaikoura, Canterbury







Check out the largest breeding colony of fur seals around Kaikoura at Ohau Point Seal Colony, most probably just resting on the rocks after a busy nights squid hunting. It's FREE to visit.

There's a car park (where you can see the seals from afar) or you can walk down the steps for a closer look.

Getting to Ohau Seal Colony | You'll find the Ohau Point Seal Colony signposted on State Highway 1 just north of Kaikoura. See our map for directions:
