Seal-Watching Trip – one of a kind nature tour in Estonia

The Baltic Sea has been home for seals for about 10 000 years, they are biggest water mammals in this region. We invite you to join our seal watching nature tour near Malusi islands – the natural retreat for seals. We reach the islands by a larger boat, departing from one of the north coast’s lovely port villages Kaberneeme. Seals are curious animals – usually they swim nearby the boat within minutes. To encourage the seals to come out and meet us, we use a clever lure: classical music! On our trip we talk about the smaller islands on our way to Malusi and talk about the seals every day life. Come with us to admire seals – one of a kind nature tour in Estonia. See you!

Things we do on the trip:

  • have a boat ride to Malusi islands;
  • listen to the stories about old traditions on the North coast of Estonia;
  • lure the curious seals with music;
  • understand better the life of seals in the Baltic Sea;
  • enjoy the company of the curious grey seals – the biggest Baltic Sea mammals;
  • always consider the welfare of the seals.

PRICE INCLUDES: pick-up and drop-off to Tallinn, guide service, motor-boat trip to the Malusi Islands.

PICK UP PLACE AND TIME: hotel, as agreed.

Transfer to Leppneeme or Kaberneeme

Our seal-watching trips include transfers to the north coast ports. Private tours reach the islands by a motor boat from Leppneeme, but when joining our regular tours (see special offers) we offer sea-trips by a bigger boat from one of the north coast’s loveliest port villages Kaberneeme.

Enjoy a sea-journey in the Kolga archipelago and on to the Malusi Islets

Grey seals live on low islets without vegetation or reefs that are located far from the mainland shore and human settlements. In the Estonian north coast islets there are some places were the largest mammals in Baltic Sea can enjoy their life. On our way (about 1 hour) to the islets we pass a beautiful archipelago and will tell you stories about population on the islands before WWII, the Baltic Sea and coastal folk-traditions. We recommend you wear warmer clothes on the sea (certainly a jacket) as even in summer it can be cold.

Experience seals-watching, with music

Seals are curious animals, usually they swim close to the boat. To encourage the seals to come out and meet us we use a clever lure: classical music! Sometimes we are lucky enough to not only see them to pop-up their heads from the sea but also lying on rocks near the islets. We lend our guests binoculars in case we cannot get close enough to see the seals.

Get to know more about the history of Estonian coastal-folk, grey seals and the Baltic Sea

On our way back you are welcome to ask all the questions you want about the seal’s habitat, breeding and protection etc.

Optional tips to enhance your experience:

  • bring a musical instrument with you or just sing during the tour and find out if seals like your music;
  • spend more time in the coastal areas and let us pre-book a nice lunch or dinner for you in the best fish restaurant in North-Estonia, Ruhe.

The seal spotting tour was one of the highlights of our trip! I have told all my friends about it, and now they want to go to Tallinn, too. Thanks so much for providing us such an authentic and memorable experience!

The seals were amazing!
The seals welfare was always considered, we did not disturb them, stayed well away, and they came swimming to the boat, curious to see what we were doing. Some did, anyway, others were much happier discussing ownership of the best rocks, or just pushing each other off rocks. They were grey seals, incidentally, and I now know much more about their lives, their needs, and why there are colonies of ringed seals also found in the Baltic.

Seal watching
We visited Estonia in August and made the Tours to the Seals and Prangli Island with Prangli Travel. We highly recommend this tours. Everything was perfectly organized. We have been contacted per mail and then shortly before the pick up in Tallinn per sms – which was a really good service – and we had a lot of fun with our tour guide. She told us many interesting facts about Estonia – about history, the people, the wildlife, everything we wanted to know. My favorite is the seals tour. The Captain indeed stayed in respectful distance to the seals, so we did not disturb them at all – but they came close to the boat by themselves and watched us. That was amazing. They are so cute <3 . When I come back to Estonia I will do the tours again, it was such a great time!

Petit Fute
Seal watching trip was amazing! This journey opened for us a lot of new sides of nature of Estonia and of it’s people. Peep was so nice retranslating the information in english for us even though we were the only foreigners.
I can say without any exaggeration that this expirience was one of the most brightful for us.

Regular seal watching
I had a most wonderful time on a seal watching tour arranged by Prangli Travel. I learned so many interesting facts about seals, nature and history of small islands we passed by on our trip. The boat ride was fun and even in spite of the fact that we saw less seals than usually can be seen, it was a real quality time. Thank you, Prangli Travel!
