The loveable sea lions of Baird Bay share their home with bottlenose dolphins, so you’re bound to bump into at least one of these curious creatures on a swimming adventure here. If you’re lucky enough to see both, you may find them trying to upstage each other for your attention. And you’ll get a giggle out of sea lions attempting to mimic you, which they’ve been known to do. Seems they are more curious of us than we are of them! There’s plenty more to do here besides – see #96. Baird Bay Ocean Eco Experience runs two tours a day from $150 per adult and $75 per child. More info:
