Cannibal Bay Travel Guide

Cannibal Bay

Cannibal Bay owes its name to the human remains once found by a surveyor here rather than to any man-eating past. Today the area is a breeding and resting ground for Hooker's sea lions and elephant seals. Although they may seem tranquil enough, they can get aggressive if disturbed and as the place name suggests have been known to attack humans in the past. Try not to come between a seal's path to the sea or approach their cubs.

Jack's Blowhole is exactly what it claims to be; a deep (55m) hole which sporadically spews seawater. It's unusual because it lies in the middle of a generous farmer's land and the sea is 200m away..
