CRESLI Seal Walks at Cupsogue Beach Park 

General Information about Seal Walks: CRESLI seal walks will take place between November and early May. Please note that weather will play a significant role in determining the seal walk schedule. Please call CRESLI at (631) 319-6003 for schedule changes and cancellations. The walks are approximately 1.2 miles round trip and take about 1 to 2 hours. These walks are suitable for children.

Please be prepared for the weather, i.e., wear warm clothing in layers. Hats, gloves, warm shoes are also recommended, as are cameras and binoculars. It’s better to be a more-on, than a less-on, i.e., having more layers than you need is the right thing. Check the weather for Westhampton Beach and assume that the winds will produce wind chill. 

2019 SEAL CRUISES WITH THE VIKING FLEET

The Viking Fleet and CRESLI are teaming up for some wonderful winter and spring Seal Watching Tours aboard the fast and luxurious 125 foot Viking Superstar. We will ride to the pristine areas of Plum Island, Great Gull Island, and Little Gull Island for breathtaking views of Harbor Seals, Grey Seals, and perhaps Harp and Hooded seals too. Every trip will be narrated by a professional naturalist. Beginning on Saturday January, 12th!
