A week of two weathers in North Norfolk on the seal boats, we started the week with strong winds and low clouds, managing to dodge the showers but everybody defintiely needing to be dressed for the weather. Despite this, we had some great sightings of the seals, particularly Grey Seals on the beach and the children loved seeing them.
One of our passengers made sure to be completely wrapped up for the weather!
Then the weather changed for the better, the wind dropped and we have had some brilliant trips out with the boat sold out and full of excited children. As we rounded the point there were a few young grey seals playing as they often are in the runnels made by the tide meeting the entrance to upper harbour and then the boat burst into excited chatter and lots of pointing as there were a group of mainly Common Seals basking in the sunshine. This trip we had a group of 30 holidaying families, staying at the Caravan park in Cromer, North Norfolk.
Mike the skipper has been fishing most days this week as we have had late tides and so our sailings have been in the late afternoon. Not much luck off Cley beach most of the week, but he did get some Mackerel (is this stealing from the hand that feeds?) which sadly didn’t make it as far as my plate.
We often have a seal following the boat, particularly when we stop to look at a group on the beach and we put the boat in neutral and this one was typical – we think that it is Sammy the seal and he loves running in our wake.
Join us soon and see the amazing wildlife up close on the North Norfolk coast, on Blakeney Point Seal trips!
