Seal Watch FAQ
Our Seal and Nature Cruises run out of Westerly, R.I. and run October-November 2020 at Viking Marine. Our Seal Tours run out of Newport, R.I. November-December 2020 at Bowens Ferry Landing. Tours are mostly on weekends, but also run on holidays and school vacations. Times vary due to scheduling around low tide (the best condition to view seals).
Seals are migratory animals and are only here fall through early spring. Join us on a tour to find out where they spend their summer months!
In Westerly, parking is available at the Viking Marina parking lot. In Newport, there is some street parking along Market Square and nearby streets, but we always recommend leaving ample time to find parking. During busy days, we recommend parking at the Public Lot at Discover Newport (about a 10 minute walk).
Our tours should be considered outdoor activities; we recommend dressing in layers!
