About

One of our five purpose built ferries which are licensed by M.C.A and hold full safety equipment will depart daily from Morston Quay (weather permitting) and will take you into Blakeney Harbour, (we don't go out to the open sea). We sail very close to the seals and there is ample time to take photographs and the knowledgeable crew are happy to answer any questions. Here there is also a good opportunity to do a spot of birdwatching. The seal colony is made up of common and grey seals and numbers are around 500 so we can GUARANTEE you will always see some, The common seals pup between June and August, and the grey between October and December. Grey seal numbers rocket from November as they arrive to pup, the last few years there have been in excess of 3000 pups born between November and Christmas so with the adults 7000+ Grey seals. They soon grow, however, and by early January the majority move off but luckily some stay all year.
After seeing the seals we will land you on Blakeney Point when possible depending on the tidal conditions. The Point is a breeding ground for migrant birds e.g common, sandwich and arctic terns. You can also visit the Old Lifeboat House, which is an information centre. Booking strongly advised, please phone 01263 740505. Visit website for more details and timetable.
Currently due to covid restrictions we are not able to land on the Point this year (2021), we also have in place covid safety policies/ procedures as required by government that we have to follow in order to keep you as safe as possible. This can often lead to slight delays during ticket collection and boarding etc. The rules are continually changing (check our website for current policies ) We ask to please be patient and please allow bit extra time. To keep social distance on board are currently running at approx. half capacity ( see our website for any more details about the trips)
Don't forget your camera!!
We look forward to seeing you !
