Seal Island is the largest island in The Carracks, a group of small rocky inshore islands 200m offshore and around 6km from St Ives.
The island gets its name as it’s the home to a colony of Grey Atlantic seals.
You have two options to see the seals; (1) is by a Seal Island boat trip from St Ives harbour or (2) with a set of binoculars from the coast path.
