Seal safari

Seal safari by boat in the Limfjord

Join us on a seal safari by boat and experience the unique nature by the mouth of the Limfjord. Our experienced guide sails through the labyrinth of channels between the sand banks and takes you close to the seals. On the trip we often see two species of seals, and there are good chances to see Denmark’s largest carnivore – the large grey seal. The male can weigh up to 300 kg. He rules out here and he’s afraid of nothing, not even the visitors in the boats. Seals are curious and often swim around the boat to see, who has come to visit. The guide talks about the seals and the rich animal life in the Limfjord. On the way back the guide might also tell about the tough life of the fishermen by the North Sea.

5 out of 5 stars

July 2020 By Kasper F:

Great nature experience for both little and large!

Seal safari by Jyllandsakvariet is definitely recommendable! There is guarantee for a great experience. Both the family’s child of 4 and 7 years and the adults were thrilled by the meeting of both spotted harbor seal and gray seal up close (20-50 metres distance). The little seal pups swam up to the boat. On the way back we sailed under the 180 meter tall offshore wind turbines.

If it is windy it is a good idea to wear rainwear, because you risk a bit of water splashing. We give our absolute recommendation to Jyllandsakvariet’s seal safari.
