There used to be a resident seal at Oddicombe Beach but I haven't seen any reports about him this year.

I have seen seals in the tidal section of the River Dart, and around Kingswear.

I have seen a single seal from the coast path on a couple of occasions at Brixham just outside the trawler basin towards Battery Gardens. Also once at Fishcombe Bay as mentioned above.

Seals are regularly spotted from trips by the wonderful Stuart Line Cruises in Exmouth.

Tip: from Torbay travel to Starcross (by car or train on the wonderful Dawlish stretch), and take small passenger ferry to Exmouth. Doubles your chances of spotting seals!
