It's always a privilege to spot a seal, behaving naturally in their own environment, moving effortlessly. It's even more special when these wild animals are curious and playful, investigating us on Stand Up Paddle Board Tours. This one may have crossed the line a little when it grabbed my leash and in this video looks like it wanted a taste of this one too.
If you are interested in seal spotting by SUP and joining one of our SUP Tours find out more here.

We are very privileged to have these gentle giants visit our shores. This was a very special encounter with the Basking Sharks just meters from the shore.
Much care is needed if you are lucky enough to find yourself in the water with a Basking Shark and not disturbing these amazing creatures is so important. SUP in a Bag is signed up to the Basking Shark watching Code of Conduct.
We saw 4 seals on a recent SUP Tour from Portreath. This one took a particular interest in us and seemed to just hang out.
SUP in a Bag follows good practice in wildlife watching and reports all seal sightings to aid research into and the conservation of seals in Cornwall. If you want to know more about seals or wish to support their conservation visit The Cornwall Seal Group
