The most common marine mammals in the B.C. coastal waters are seals. In this area, you can find mainly harbour seals. They can be seen almost in every season.
These ocean creatures can be spotted in coastal areas of the North Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. There are over 100,000 seals along the B.C. coastline, especially Sunshine Coastline and Sunset Beach. They do spend several weeks at sea, but they also like to lie on the rocky shorelines warming up and resting. The greatest time to see whole families is when the pups are born. This period comes in late spring and summer. In the northern areas of the B.C. coastline births occur in May–June, while southern shores see seal babies around July–August.
