Kaikoura Seal Pups

Has anyone been recently to seal pup pools north of Kaikoura? If so, are the pups still there are most old enough they are in the ocean now?

Ive been in July before and they have been there, not many though.

Most are born in January so winter months between may and October are when the most are there. Ive been in May and there were hundreds. Also went past over summer in November and there were about ten.

During the day during winter is the best time to see them

Yesterday there were six in the pool. So worth a visit.

Called in yesterday. Only one there. Heaps of adults and babies just by the start to the Peninsula walkway in Kaikoura.
