Seal safari to the singing seals

Meet the howling and singing seals of the Bothnia Bay

Your seal experience starts at the charming Renöhamn wharf, 7 km outside the town of Piteå, were your guide welcome you and take you onboard our comfortable boat M/B RENÖN. After a safety and program introduction, we start your tour to the seals passing island with beautiful summerhouses and fisherman´s cottages in the inner archipelago, to the outermost unsettled wilderness islands where moose, reindeer and even brown bear roam. The sea eagle is frequently seen in the area, rich in sea birds.
At the seal area, the best spot for seal observations in the Bothnia Bay, you will find numerous of grey seals roosting on rocks just beneath the water, giving an impression they are lying on the water. You hear them grunt and growl, while others are singing and howling almost as wolfs, giving a natural explanation to the mythological singing Sirens, the dangerous beautiful creatures, who lured sailors with their voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their islands. Also, in this area, there are many old shipwrecks. Around the boat the heads of curious seals glance at you, until they slowly sink back in the water, to pop up somewhere else.You have excellent opportunity to take pictures of the seals, but you need tele lenses.

After this close encounter with these northern seals, we stop at a island where you take a rest and have a taste of the coastal Swedish Lapland island snacks. On the way back, you may be lucky to see the rear Northern Harbor seal, a relic from the Ice age who has survived in these northern waters of the Baltic Sea.
