We saw many seals as well and in some cases we almost fell over them, when walking on the beach and concentrating on something else and all of a sudden we came too close to a seal, that started screaming.
Normally they are harmless, but it is always best to keep a good distance, because they can move pretty fast and when they bite you you might die in some cases because of the bacteries that will mingle with your blood and kill you that way within some hours.
But we were lucky, nothing like this happened in our cruise !
