Ohau Stream Walk – Baby Seal Day Care

A few miles from Kaikoura, merely identified by a sign that says Ohau Stream, is an incredible natural wonder. A short walk from the highway is a waterfall where seal pups hang out while their parents are off hunting. It’s pretty amazing to get so close and witness these guys frolicking around and misbehaving. My personal favourite was one seal pup who proudly sat on a rock and rubbed his but for about 5 minutes. No shame. Considering this won’t cost you a penny and if you’re driving up the east coast anyway it’s well worth a quick stop. This was one of the stop offs we made on the Kiwi Experience. Check out the clip below to get a feel for what it was like to be there…
