Seal Observation Tours

Seal Observation in Îles de la Madeleine

The seal observation tours is the major Winter activity on the Îles de la Madeleine and is unique in the world! It allows you to observe harp seals in their natural habitat on the ice floes around the Islands. Worth discovering!

A unique experience

Harp seals come around the islands to give birth. Go and meet them will change your life.

Every year at the beginning of March, hundreds of thousands of Harp Seals come to the ice floes around the Islands when it is time for the birth of their young, which are called "whitecoats". The sight of this immense herdspread out over the endless fields of ice and snow is truly awe-inspiring. Discover the Islands in their winter garb.

Visual Wonders

Enjoy the peace of the ice, the silence of winter broken by the singing of the seals and their pups all around you. You will never live such an experience!
