As all the babies, fur seal pups look more appealing than grown-up mammals. One might observe these unbelievably cute animals with huge brown eyes and their restless water games for hours and days. While the pups enjoy themselves, their moms swim fishing in the ocean. It allows you to come really close to the baby fur seals, marvel at their playfulness and take wonderful pictures. This delight is available during the period between April and October. One of the best hotspots for fur seal pups watching is the foot of the Ohau Waterfall in Kaikoura.​
