Antarctic Fur Seal
Gathering in huge colonies in South Georgia, the sight is incredible!
Our Expert Says… "Fur seals gather in huge numbers in November as this is the peak time for breeding. There are so many that some of the beaches are closed. Travelers in January or February will enjoy seeing the many pups who by this point are very curious about visitors!"
Unlike it might seem from its name, the Antarctic Fur Seal is actually most commonly found around the subantarctic islands like South Georgia, the Falklands, and the South Shetland Islands, rather than the icy continent itself.
