Cornwall Seals Videos – For some of us, watching seals pop up, their dog-like head watching or at least appearing to be watching us is one of the great pleasures if walking the coast path in Cornwall. There are many ways and locations top see seals from the rugged clifftops of Godrevy or on the north coast path near St Agnes.

The harbour seals in Newquay are a great summer attraction as visitors watch them from the harbour walls being fed by the returning boats. Seals can often be spotted in the surf or hauled out on rocks or on isolated beaches. The large colony at Godrevy can often be seen hauled out at Mutton Cove.

Of course for some get very close encounters. Divers will frequently experience seals around them so too Kayakers. They do appear at times to be very curious creatures and will often come close to divers and canoes to inspect. However, care should be taken. Never approach an apparently abandoned seal pup or attempt to get close to seals on the beach.

For more information on the seals around the coast of Cornwall from the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.  One of the best places to go seal spotting is at Mutton Cove at Godrevy.  There is a large colony of seals around the island and coast near Godrevy Lighthouse.

When walking the coastal path do NOT walk and watch at the same time!
