Summer Public Education Program

viewing platform

Our resident Harp seal population can be viewed year round from our outdoor observation platform. There are currently five Harp seals being studied at the OSC. For more information on our seals and related research, please visit the OSC Harp Seal Website.

During the summer, many Minke and Humpback whales can be seen in Logy Bay. The whales follow the capelin which move inshore to spawn in late June or early July.

Icebergs can be found along the Newfoundland and Labrador coast during the spring. Sometimes they travel right into the bay!
