First up are the Weddell seals, which are the most southerly breeding mammal species in the world. These magnificent creatures can weigh up to 600 kg and live up to 30 years. Seeing them in their natural habitat is an experience that you’ll never forget.

Next, there are the fearsome leopard seals. These powerful predators are known for their fierce nature and are the most common predator of penguins in Antarctica. With adult males weighing up to 450 kg, these are truly impressive creatures to behold.

If you’re looking for a more vocal experience, the crabeater seals may be just what you’re after. Despite their name, they don’t actually eat crabs – they feed mainly on krill. However, they are one of the most vocal seal species, with a range of calls used for communication.

Ross seals are the smallest of the Antarctic seals, but don’t let their size fool you – they’re known for their distinctive “snarling” vocalizations and are found primarily in the Ross Sea region of Antarctica.

Finally, there are the elephant seals. While not as common in Antarctica as other species, they are still found in the region and are the largest of all seals, with males weighing up to 4,500 kg. Their large size and trunk-like snouts make them a truly remarkable sight to see.
