Seal Colony Exploration: Zip across the aquamarine waters of Gothenburg’s harbor aboard a high-speed RIB for a close up look at the area’s marine residents. Keep your eyes open for grey seals sunbathing on the rocks as your boat zooms down the picturesque archipelago. After a safety briefing, you’ll gear up and take a seat in the rib boat. The tour starts by heading west to the territories of the seal colonies, very close to Vinga lighthouse. The seal colony consists of 20-40 animals, most likely sunbathing and resting on the rock since seals are active and hunt at night. You will get as close as 15-20 meters so do not forget your camera! After the visit to the seal colony, turn south of Brännö and Känsö with nice views of the picturesque archipelago. Pass Långedrag, the sailing metropol, on the return to the pier.
