  • Beautiful place, total disorientation. We had the chance to see seals, stop on the island to the monks, really it's the walk

  • In this season, most of the birds took off. But the comments made by the crew are exciting. And we were lucky to see 2 seals who probably forgot to go.

  • Starting from Perros-guirec we did the tour of the 7 Islands with a stop at the island to the monks. The comments of the guide on the boat were perfect and very informative. A must in the region, a beautiful boat trip that allows to see gannets and gulls of the island to the monks (attention especially of do not disturb them, they can become aggressive).

  • Pretty birds...
  • The largest French reserve of seabirds. The visit of the archipelago is a staple of the pink granite coast. Best time in May June and at low tide for the observation of the seals.

  • Things to do in May and at low tide for the chance to see seals. The site is superb. You can see the birds of very close.

  • Great experience!!! With the ship approaching the island first and gradually discovers that white BLOB on the top is actually a colony of thousands of seabirds. Hundreds flying over the boat and their cries and plain flights are awesome. Resumed after a few minutes browsing on a small rock we see the first seal placidly in the Sun heats up, raise your head for a look and quiet returns to slumber. We meet other and it really is an emotion! We continue towards the coast and return to the port. Unfortunately, the comment is only in French. Really recommend
