  • Louisiana 2013 Tax Free Holiday = Big Savings at Seal Sports!

    This week customers have a once-a-year opportunity to 'take a holiday' from State Sales Tax and save on everything (sale or regular priced) at Seal Sports.  In fact, most retail purchases throughout the state are exempt from the four percent state sales tax during the 2013 Louisiana Annual Sales Tax Holiday Friday, August 2, and Saturday, August 3, 2013.

From our already highly reduced (35%!) scuba gear packages, to our many newly added fishing and recreational kayaks (our showroom is stuffed) everyone saves on nearly everything.

Drop by and see us on Friday and Saturday, and purchase that mask or wetsuit that you've been considering, or get a great deal on one of our already low priced items.  We enjoy sharing this savings opportunity with you, and hope to see you later this week.

    My friend Tyler Walther and I both love kayaking and fishing, and together we have formed a team called UP21 fishing. UP21 Foundation is a nonprofit organization started by Tyler's mom, Cassie Walther, and two other mothers that have children with Down syndrome. UP21’s mission is to provide support, resources and education to families of individuals with Down Syndrome, and the community, to foster an environment in which individuals with Down Syndrome achieve their full potential in their community. You can learn more about UP21 at their website By establishing the UP21 fishing team, we get to fish for a cause and make a difference in young children's lives, two things we really enjoy.
