Be a Responsible Seal Viewer

Comply with seal watching guidelines

HARASSMENT WARNING SIGNS:

If your presence causes any of the following reactions, on land or in the water, you are too close.
  • Increased vocalizations by seals
  • Movement back into the water (single animal or the herd)
  • All eyes are on you (single animal or several in the herd)
  • Disturbance from normal resting position (lifting their head to watch you)

STAY AT LEAST 50 YARDS AWAY FROM RESTING SEALS

  • Seals that are continually being approached never get a chance to rest.
  • Repeated interaction can exhaust seals, leaving them vulnerable to predation and illness
  • Continued disturbance of mother /pup pairs could lead to abandonment and subsequent mortality of the pup.

NEVER GET IN THE WATER WITH SEALS

  • Seals are large, wild animals and can be extremely dangerous.
  • If they feel threatened they may become aggressive in order to defend themselves.

NEVER ATTEMPT TO FEED SEALS.

  • You could get seriously injured.
  • Feeding seals is against the law; you could be arrested and/or fined.
  • Food that isn't a normal part of their diet will do more harm than good!
  • Feeding negatively impedes their ability to hunt and locate food on their own.
  • Feeding encourages seals to approach boats looking for handouts.
  • This behavior has resulted in injuries from boat propellers.

LIMIT YOUR VIEWING TIME: TO A MAXIMUM OF 30 MINUTES.
