The Harp Seal Watch

The World's Most Heartwarming Adventure
Originally arranged to help replace seal hunting with seal watching, the Harp Seal Watch has the potential to be a classic example of successful ecotourism. Unfortunately, after 25 years of running this adventure alongside the local people in the Magdalen Islands, Natural Habitat Adventures has determined to suspend our participation until a broader base of cooperation exists between seal hunters and visitors. Should we reinstate this special adventure, we will send an email newsletter announcement.

Trip Highlights

  • A rare small-group adventure to see white-furred baby harp seals up close – truly a remarkable wildlife encounter
  • Walk with our expert guides on ice floes among herds of seals in the Gulf of St. Lawrence
  • Discover the serene winter beauty of the Magdalen Islands, flung far off Quebec’s coast
