Ohau Seal Colony

Ohau Point seal colony is the best place in the area to see seals. Start the walk from a car parking area off SH1, 27 km north of Kaikoura. This short walk makes its way alongside Ohau Stream to a small picturesque waterfall. During the winter months watch for seals in the stream that have travelled up from the ocean. There may be young, playful seal pups swimming in the waterfall pool.
