Blakeney Point Seal Trips operate in Blakeney Harbour, a beautiful and historic seaport on the picturesque North Norfolk Coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Our traditional clinker built ferry boat “Ptarmigan” will take you on a fascinating voyage through Blakeney Harbour to the seal colony, where both Common and Grey seals reside - for the keen birdwatchers there are many different species to be spotted, including Terns, Ducks, Geese, Gulls, Cormorants, Shearwaters and Guillamots.
Common and Grey Seals are based at Blakeney Point year round, the Greys producing pups in November to January and Common Seals in July and August. Numbers fluctuate depending on the location of local fish stocks, but there can be anything up to around 600 seals. The seals are very used to the boat and their natural inquisitiveness means that they often surface to stare at us from just a few metres away, an incredible sight.
During the trip, normally around 1 hour, we will share the long history and sights of this beautiful harbour and surrounding area, along with all the facts about the seals, birds and other wildlife that you will have a chance of seeing.
Trips do vary according to tides and booking is strongly advised, particularly during holiday periods. To book, call us between 8am - 9pm Monday to Sunday. Tickets are purchased at Blakeney Quay in advance of sailing times, and departure is then from Morston Quay, a 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk away.
Our fully qualified skipper and his crew pride themselves on keeping safety a priority and the boat is fully equipped and recently refitted.
