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!

- have a boat ride to Malusi islands;
- listen to the stories about old traditions on the North coast of Estonia;

Seal spotting tour in Estonia
Nice tour! Going on the boat to the sea, with the small islands, the wind and the shining sun – this was already charming itself. We were in a real wild nature with many birds like cormorants and eagles, and, of course, the seals. The seals were curious about us and cautious at the same time, keeping some distance from our boat but close enough to enjoy watching at them. With interesting guidance, this was one of the most beatiful experiences during our one week travelling in Estonia.

Take your binoculars, windproof jacket and of course, if you have it, a camera! Let me say, it is a nature tour so do not expect seals to give you a special performance next to you 😜 Thank you Prangli Travel for this wonderful Sunday! 🤗
Unique nature tour in Estonia – Seal spotting
Last year I found out that it’s possible to go on a seal watch here in Estonia. Didn’t think twice and got the tickets! I loved this little seal exploration trip so much! Thank you @pranglitravel for organizing trips like this and sharing the knowledge! 💙 We were taken by the boat to the area of small remote islands. The first thing I noticed were the bird islands covered with countless cormorants. Soon I started to notice little heads peeking at us from the water… Seals are very curious animals by their nature, so they quickly came closer to our boat to check who are we (these seals are wild animals, they are not fed by people etc). The main seals who live in Estonian waters are gray seals. They can weigh up to 300 kg. Gray seals are predators and feed themselves by catching cod. Years ago it was possible to see three types of seals here, now it’s only one. Mostly because of the heavy ship traffic and the fact that there is no sea ice during the winter. We are not on this planet alone, it’s time to understand that and start living in harmony with nature and other species. This way we can maintain all this breathtaking beauty.🙏
The seals in Estonia are curious
20-30 seals were eager to come and find out who we were, once we had reached Malusi Islands. That is how it works – they are watching us and vice versa. We had a wonderful guide called Triin with us, she explained our plan for the tour as well as told us about the life on small islands on the way to Malusi and the life of the seals in Estonia.
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!
Private seal-watching tour
Everything was perfect!
Thanks a lot!
Seal watching was incredible
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 sunning 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.

Perfect place for seal-watching. We also took a video.
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!
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.
Private trip to seals
Thank you for a great trip full of positive emotions!
Day with seals
I strongly suggest! The guide was super and a it was a great experience in so many ways!
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!
It was a great trip with the spectacular guide!
