The likeable Saimaa ringed seal is one of the rarest seals in the world, and it only lives in lake Saimaa in Finland. The landscapes in Puumala are fantastic and there are over 20 Saimaa seals living in the area. The five first weeks after ice-out are the best weeks of the year to see seals lying on a rock sunbathing, as the adult seals are changing their fur during that period. Later in summer seals can normally be seen only in water as they come breathing in surface.
Join friendly captain Arto on a Seal watching cruise and get to know Saimaa seal, its habits, habitat, and if you are lucky you can see a Saimaa seal with your own eyes. Ecoboat is the most seal-friendly boat in lake Saimaa, and it brings you on the waters of Saimaa Seal during all summer. Ecoboat is very comfortable and weather-proof, the covered cabin keeps you warm, and it is great for photography.
