Seal Watch at Rome Point

2.68 miles; North Kingstown, RI

I’ve been here before hoping to see seals, but no luck. Today, however, as part of a PCHC hike, we saw many, many of them! And the guy from romepointseals.org was there, as well, with his vast knowledge and fantastic telescope. Great hike, and a great day for seal-watching!

It was a cool and overcast day, and right by the water, it was downright cold. But everyone was too excited about seeing the Harbor Seals to complain. Much.

Seals. Honest.

Seals. Honest.

And yes, another crappy cellphone photo of stuff you’re going to have to take my word for being there. Hence, the arrows. The Rome Point Seals guy counted over 84 seals on those rocks. And with binoculars you could actually pretty much see them. They were amazing to watch through his fancy high powered telescope.

Car-cass. See what I did there?

And the John H. Chafee Nature Preserve has other attractions as well. Check out the hot rod!

You can find out more about the seals from the website I mentioned, above. And I encourage you to do so. It’s a great site. You can find out a little something about the Nature Preserve from this RI Parks website, even if they can’t actually spell “Rhode Island.” And as always, click on the map image, above to download my gps track.
