Seal Watching Cruises
Come see the South Shore Harbor Seals. These irresistible creatures have been visiting our area for some 20+ years. Initially, only a couple of seals took up residence at the southernmost end of Haunts Creek. In following years a half dozen or so were visible at one time, but as years went on, more and more gathered every year. In recent years, 60 to 100 seals can be seen happily sunning and playfully swimming on many local peninsulas. More arrive every year!
Marine Biologists suggest that these seals follow the very large schools of herring on their annual migration from the northernmost reaches of Canada leading the seals here and keeping them in the area from mid-winter to mid-spring.
The seals consume more than three times their body weight a day in fish just to keep from going hungry. An interesting diet, don’t you think? The very cold, deep waters attract herring in large numbers, and keep our friends the seals well fed and happy. Come have a look at how the harbor Seals are in the wild, and see one of Nature’s most adorable and happy animals. This is real fun for the whole family.
Cory “The Famous Bay men” Wyant will be personally narrating most trips. Cory has grown up on the very bay that these Harbor Seals visit each winter. When it comes to marine knowledge no one is better than Cory!
