Cruise the sparkling waters of the Bohuslän archipelago, a cluster of thousands of islands and islets that are home to large colonies of harbour seals and other marine life.

After a short walk along the pier, you will board your touring boat and begin cruising through the Bohuslän archipelago. Literally thousands of granite and gneiss islands comprise the archipelago, an ideal environment for seals and other cold-water marine life.

While the rugged, rocky landscape is also peppered with small fishing villages, it’s the wildlife that attracts the most attention, certainly among nature lovers. Seabirds such as eiders, ospreys and white-tailed sea eagles are often spotted soaring overhead. The waters are teeming with more than 2,000 marine species, including playful porpoises, which occasionally leap out of the water.

Still, seals are among the most commonly seen animals because they congregate in huge colonies and often emerge from the water for long periods of time to bask on the sun-warmed rocks. Chances are you will observe plenty of harbor seals, one of three seal species found here. Also known as common seals, they have large eyes, puppy-like faces and a highly inquisitive nature. Their coloring varies from brown to gray with the adults weighing close to 300 pounds. You’ll come close enough to clearly see the seals without disturbing them.

After your seal safari, you will cruise back to the pier, where you can either walk to the ship or venture into Lysekil to do some exploring on your own.

Please note: This tour includes limited walking; however guests must be able to enter and exit the tour boat with limited assistance. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Those who suffer from motion sickness are advised to take preventative measures. Weather appropriate clothing to include a light jacket; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. There is a restroom aboard the vessel.
