Sealion Island - Events

Sea Lion Island is home to the Falkland Islands largest breeding colony of Southern Elephant Seals

Large bulls come ashore from the start of October every year to start marking their territory; the weights vary but can be as much as 3.5 tonnes and anything up to 14ft long. Females will start coming ashore at this point and the males will begin to establish their harem. Male bulls can control up to 30 females in their harem and are very protective. Around the middle of October the Elephant Seals are at their breeding peak with numbers around 2000, including approximately 400 pups. This is an ideal time to visit, remember to bring your camera.

Sea Lion Lodge accommodates up to 20 persons and group discounts are available. Prices are per person and include full board at the lodge.
