Seal Rock is one of the spots where the Milford Sound cruise boats stop and is very popular with the tourists.
The image shows a colony of fur seals sunbathing on Seal Rock. These are adolescent males driven by their fathers from the family. Once they are old enough, they go back to start a new family.
The slanted flat surface of this rock is ideal for seals to congregate as a group and socialize. The low side of the slanted surface enables the seals to lift themselves onto the rock, and the high side prevents the water from flowing on to the surface.
