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.
