My husband and I took the seal colony half day tour on January 28, 2019 and were disappointed with the tour. First, the driver was fifteen minutes late picking us up and showed up in a van and not the 4WD vehicle promised. We only got half the tour because the van could not "drive you across a live active fault line, over rocky beachfront and around headlands," which was half of the tour. When we got to the seal colony, there were three 4WD vehicles that had arrived from the coastline (other direction), which the other travelers said was great! Not happy.
