Thanks for making a reservation!


Pinniped Passes

Recommended but Not Required

This season CRESLI is introducing seal season passes that will allow the holder unlimited seal walks! We are offering three levels: Grey, Harp and Harbor Seal Pinniped Passes.
  • Grey Seal Pinniped Pass ($65) is for a family up to 6 people
  • Harp Seal Pinniped Pass ($50) is for up to 4 people
  • Harbor Seal Pinniped Pass ($30) is for up to two people.
Each pass lasts the whole seal season and can be used an unlimited number of times.
This is an inexpensive and easy way to see Long Island’s seals all season.
All you need to do is go to our website and register. We will send you a laminated card that you will need to bring to each seal walk for which you have made a reservation. Considering that we have over 20 scheduled seal walks remaining and ask each person for $5. This is a REAL bargain!

Please note that you DO NOT NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT to use  PayPal, just follow the link for Pay with Debit or Credit Cards under the PayPal login request button.

Be a responsible seal viewer

comply with seal watching guidelines

HARASSMENT WARNING SIGNS:

If your presence causes any of the following reactions, on land or in the water, you are too close.
  • Increased vocalizations by seals
  • Movement back into the water (single animal or the group)
  • All eyes are on you (single animal or several in the group)
  • Disturbance from normal resting position (lifting their head to watch you)

STAY AT LEAST 50 YARDS AWAY FROM RESTING SEALS

  • Seals that are continually being approached never get a chance to rest.
  • Repeated interaction can exhaust seals, leaving them vulnerable to predation and illness
  • Continued disturbance of mother /pup pairs could lead to abandonment and subsequent mortality of the pup.

NEVER GET IN THE WATER WITH SEALS

  • Seals are large, wild animals and can be extremely dangerous.
  • If they feel threatened they may become aggressive in order to defend themselves.

NEVER ATTEMPT TO FEED SEALS.

  • You could get seriously injured.
  • Feeding seals is against the law; you could be arrested and/or fined.
  • Food that isn't a normal part of their diet will do more harm than good!
  • Feeding negatively impedes their ability to hunt and locate food on their own.
  • Feeding encourages seals to approach boats looking for handouts.
  • This behavior has resulted in injuries from boat propellers.

LIMIT YOUR VIEWING TIME: TO A MAXIMUM OF 30 MINUTES.
