"I had a great experience on the sunset seal safari with my brother!
guide was friendly & knowledgeable, evening tea was delicious and
we even managed to see 3 seals even though a sighting is not guaranteed
this time of the year. Also saw other wildlife too and the complimentary
binoculars made watching them really enjoyable.
We also missed our
original cruise due to a booking error on our behalf but the customer
service kindly changed our booking for another date with short notice
and for no extra fee, which was lovely.Would highly recommend!" Google feedback
ground for tents is quite small and far from the shared facilities, but
for caravans it's fine. The hotel rooms are nice, there's even AC." Google feedback
"This was the first 3h long safari with 7-14yo children. We, grownups,
enjoyed it really. In addition to discovering Saimaa seals, we could
also dive into Finlands magical nature - the stillness of Linnansaari
national park was breath-taking! Kids also enjoyed themselves and it was
a really good first experience for them. The guide was friendly,
helpful and authentic. " Bokun feedback
"Private seal safari was great possibility to observe the seals without
bothering them and respecing their area, so they didn't even notice our
boat. I really recommend it and likely will do it again in the future." Bokun feedback
