Briefly about the seals

Spotted seals are up to 1.8m long and can weigh up to 130kg. The males are slightly larger than the females and the coat is like all other real seals short and has no bearing on the ability to hold on to the heat, which one centimeter thick spell layer provides.

The coat is light gray or brown, with large geographical differences in color and pattern, which usually consist of many irregular black or dark spots. The spots are never ring-shaped, as with the ring seal.

Spotted seal may be known from gray seal on its smaller size and smaller, more spiky and dense oval nostrils almost touching each other (V-shape) where the gray seal has elongate, almost parallel nostrils.

Young gray seals can be very difficult to distinguish from spotted seal at a distance. Like all other real seals, the spotted seal has no outer ears. The ear is instead seen as a hole on the side of the head.

Koresand southwest of Mandø has been designated as one of the specially protected areas (habitat areas) as part of the Natura 2000 network.

Remember your jacket on the tour! The winds can be strong on the coast!

It is a good idea to dress appropriately for the Mandø weather. It is recommended to take a windproof jacket and a hat with you on the tour. Blankets will be provided during the tour.
