It’s official: it’s seal season!

If you’re taking a stroll along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path over the next few months, remember to take your binoculars with you.

Not just for spotting the migrant birds making their way to faraway lands but for the cute, fluffy, white seal pups appearing in the secluded coves and beaches along the coast. It’s time to see a seal!

Each September, Pembrokeshire’s resident Atlantic grey seal population, of about 5,000, begin to give birth to their young.

Seals can be seen right around the Pembrokeshire coast but your best bet is to head to the northern coast line. You can take a boat trip to one of the islands such as Ramsey where Lisa or Greg, the resident wardens, can let you in on their secret spots for seal watching.

Or sign up for one of The National Trust North Pembrokeshire seal watching walks. Their informative wardens can give you an insight into the life of a Pembrokeshire seal.
