Meet Harry the Seal on board Helsinki-Stockholm ships

Charming Harry the Seal makes every person smile!

Read the story of Harry »

""Hello, I'm Harry the Seal, a grey seal born on the Baltic Sea!

I'm fond of herring, salty liquorice and adventures. An adventurer I've been since I was little. I have always wanted to explore bigger islands and wider swells. Meet new friends, hear fascinating stories from everyone living around the Baltic Sea.

When I was all small and fluffy, I decided to go exploring with my friend Putte the Porpoise. Whoosh and swoosh we swam around the islands and the reefs. We tumbled in the water diving deeper and deeper. I had so much fun that I forgot to keep an eye on Putte. Suddenly Putte was nowhere to be seen. And I was all alone, in a strange landscape, far from home.

I studied the tips of the islets, searched for the right direction from the rocks on the sea floor. Asked the fish, talked to the seagulls but they were strangers and couldn't help me. Then I heard a familiar sound, a fog horn of a great white ship. The same one that greeted us every day at our home islet. I turned towards the sound and saw a great white ship with its beautiful pipe. That's how I figured out where my home was. And I started swimming towards it, as fast as I ever could.

The next day I stayed close to my home. When the sun began to set I laid down on my favorite spot on our islet to see that great white ship again. I hadn't really paid attention to her before, but that night, when she greeted me with her fog horn, I replied. How big and beautiful she was! That's when I knew that when I grew up, I was going to get on board that ship. I knew that on that ship I could explore bigger islands and wider wells. Make new friends. And always find my way back home."
