Common Seals and crawling seals within reach

If you like a change of scenery you will appreciate this outing in the Bay of Somme classified as one of the most beautiful in the world. Imagine up to 14 kms of sand beach showing at low tide and seals sun bathing on the sea shore waiting for water to back up.  This vision is quite incredible, but beware the site can be very dangerous. Indeed the water speed can reach 2m/s and the place where you will be standing can be covered by 3m of water in 3h30, meaning 352 millions of sq. meters moving with each tide.  Fortunately our guide Sylvain knows the area perfectly, he will explain to you the life of the seals but also a whole extremely rich eco-system populating the Bay of Somme. This lover of the area will introduce you to various sea shells, crustaceans, plants and fishes populating this magical area.
