For those of you looking to get closer to the seals, I recommend checking out the Save The Bay Tours in Westerly, RI – A quick 20 minute ride from our house. These tours run from October into late December depending on weather conditions. For more information about the seal tours, these Westerly Sun articles Save the Bay Tours Return and Nature and History Bundled Into a Winter Cruise can give you additional insight. My advice is to be sure to bundle up and have a nice set of binoculars handy!
In the meantime, I will enjoy the seals on Lyddy Island – for however long that they stay.
