The World's Most Heartwarming Adventure
"So many wonderful things, I certainly can't pick one. The top picks for me were the seals themselves (of course), but also experiencing it with the knowledge, expertise and guide skill that Melissa provided. The two local guides also deserve special mention for the special quality they added to the trip. They enthusiastically shared their knowledge of the islands and not just watched out for our safety on the ice, but very much shared their knowledge and caring for the creature we had come to visit!!!!"
“The time out on the ice is one of the most memorable experiences of my entire life! I have a renewed sense of respect, compassion and the desire for this captivating species. Thank you!”
"This trip met all of our wildest dreams! The general philosophy of NHA was always apparent: Respect for the wildlife, care and protection of the environment and respect for the people of the island were foremost. Being out on the ice made me realize just how fragile we are - a very humbling and positive experience. It is evident that your staff love what they do. What a pleasure to be in the company of such caring and knowledgeable people. We will see you again."
"This was an outstanding trip. The seal visits were wonderful - everything I'd hoped. The hooded seal visit was perfect. The guides helped us get to where we needed to be for great photographs! Everything I wanted to see and photograph, I did. As an outdoor adventure this was stellar and I had a lot of fun, too."
"This was a very special experience. We were able to pet a seal! Visiting the seals in their natural environment will be a treasured memory. Please continue the work you are doing."
"NHA's strong suit is definitely its wonderful staff. I am constantly amazed at the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone! This group of guides, leaders and organizers are a wonderful bunch."
"It was simply a great trip; it's one I could recommend to others with full confidence that they would get the same wonderful treatment."
"Our experience with the seals was awesome. It couldn't have been better."
“I was thrilled to finally get on the ice with the seals. It’s been a dream of mine for many years. They were precious!”
“All the staff members went above and beyond expectations. Aside from being knowledgeable about the wildlife, they would do anything to improve your experience.”
“I enjoyed being taken on an exciting adventure that I could never manage on my own. Your trips allow me to travel and see interesting things.”
"I had a FANTASTIC trip!!! The babies were SO CUTE and I actually got to touch one!! That ranks right up there with seeing Emperor penguins in Antarctica and swimming with manatees! I also enjoyed seeing the islands and meeting the people. They were all very friendly, helpful and caring. I really can't think of anything that I didn't enjoy!! We had a great group, everyone was very nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend this trip!"
