This was our highlight of our whole trip on KI. If you have limited time and need to choose between the sights, I would suggest skipping the seal tour and just visit this instead. Not only is it free, you get to see lots of them too. There are plenty here and they are in more stunning surrounds (instead of just on a sandy beach). We were so happy to do the seal tour the day prior, but when we saw this, it was the icing on the cake. Nobody who visits KI should skip this, it is the absolute best. Make sure you walk right down to the end of the boardwalk otherwise you'll miss the best bit. If you are doing the area, make sure you do the remarkable rocks before this, as the rocks will be a let down after this!

It's a bit of a hike down to the Arch and it's worth every step . To watch the seals playing ,surfing and sun baking amongst the natural beauty of the rugged rocks was a memory I will treasure

Wow, what else can one say! Count the sea lions, feel the 'breeze' & enjoy the views. Pictures are one thing but to experience it...Wow!

The Arch is dramatic...add the opportunity to watch the seals makes this landmark special. The pups were so cute...interacting with one another!
