Saimaa ringed seal cruises 18.-20.05.2023


Saimaa ringed seal cruises again 18.-20.5.2023

In cooperation with WWF and Taipalsaari municipality we have agreed to organise the following Saimaa ringed seal cooperation cruises 18.-20.5.2023. As in previous years, the aim is to make the Saimaa and the Saimaa ringed seal accessible to all, as well as a small support for the conservation work of the Saimaa ringed seal. Since 2016, we have already donated more than €10,000 to WWF’s work to protect the Saimaa ringed seal. On the cruises, we get to know the life of the Saimaa ringed seal in its own habitat, as told by our guide, and any observation is a happy addition when it happens. Ismo Marttinen, who has been involved in the conservation work of the Saimaa ringed seal for a long time and has been acquainted with the ringed seal’s life for decades in his father’s footsteps, has once again promised to be our guide.

Bring your own binoculars and suitable clothing to be on the ship’s outdoor decks.
