Baby Seals Featured in
Late February and early March are the most memorable months to observe harp seals and their life cycle. Every year at that time mother seals give birth to their pups and spend around two weeks feeding and taking care of them in the middle of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
While their mothers swim, thousands of whitecoats carelessly lounge all day long on ice surrounding the Îles de la Madeleine, which offers a perfect opportunity to see them really close. In order not to disturb the harp seals, special helicopter tours deliver small visitor groups to the island for a few hours, during which you can have a great time in the wilderness of ice.
