Go with The Øresund Aquarium on an exciting seal safari and experience the harbor seal in its natural abandonments.
As something completely new in 2022, The Øresund Aquarium has started arranging seal safaris. The reason is that the population of the harbor seal is now so large in the Sound that you now have really good chances of getting a look at this fantastic marine mammal and even often close to the boat. So go with The Øresund Aquarium on a seal safari, and get up close and personal with the beautiful seals that thrive in the Øresund.
We sail out in a large rubber boat and set course for the Swedish side of the Øresund, where we know that the curious seals live in fairly large flocks. We are joined by The Øresund Aquarium's marine biologist and nature guides, who will tell and entertain about the life of the harbor seal in the Øresund.
In the last 10-20 years, the population of harbor seals has multiplied and they thrive in the Sound, where there is plenty of food for the impressive sea mammals. At The Øresund Aquariums tours in 2021, we saw seals on all the trips where the seals like to stay, so even though we do not provide a “seal guarantee”, the opportunities to see seals on the trips are quite good.
