Sunset Seal Safari in Linnansaari National Park

Best way to see the seals is when they are resting on the rocks. May is the main seal season when we can see the seals molting on the rocks throughout the day. After the molting season (when the seals shed their winter fur) the best time to see the seals is at sunset when they rest on the rocks. Departure time of the sunset safari depends on the time, please check times from the calendar.

On this seal safari you will enter deep into the national park, to the home waters of osprey and the endangered Saimaa ringed seal. On this tour our main goal is to have good look at the seals and get to know about their life! You will be guided by one of our wilderness guides specialized in seals. Seal Safaris are made with open boats to give the participants the best possibility to spot the seals. We also stop on one of the islands to enjoy a Coffee break in the wilderness. Duration 3 hours.

Boat is equipped with Life jackets, rain gear, EA kit and binoculars.

SEAL SEASON:

May is the main seal season. In May we can guarantee to see the seals molting on the rocks throughout the day. Seals molt from the time the ice has melted for 1 month, this is usually from the beginning of May until the first week of June. After the molting season (when the seals shed their winter fur) the best time to see the seals is at sunset. At sun set we can also see the seals resting on the rocks. Time for the sunset safari can be seen from the calendar.

GOOD TO KNOW: On our lake safaris we travel with safe and fast aluminum boats that are able to land even on the rocky islands. We also have a catamaran with bow visor for easy access. All our guides have years of experience with the seal excursions and they know the best places for spotting the seals.
