We were concerned that a boat trip in October would be on choppy seas but in fact, the route hugs the coast down to the River Stour estuary where the seals bask on the sand flats. The guide said that the number of seals to...More

We set off to see the seals and found large numbers of adults and young. The boat only takes 12 so do book well in advance

So nice to see seals in a natural habitat, very close up. The Sea Searcher boat that we went on, was very nice, seating if you wanted, or you can stand. The trip is an hour and a half long, well worth the money. The...More

What a friendly and enjoyable 20 min trip around the harbour. A bargain at only £4 Would recommend. And because it's inside the harbour wall it remains calm so good for even the poorest sailors.

It was quite chilly. We should have taken warmer coats! Even though the sun was out. It was expensive £100 for 3 adults and 3 children. But the kids enjoyed it and the seals were definitely worth seeing.

Did the seal watching trip aboard Sea Searcher. We had a great trip, saw lots of seals and had a little history lesson on the area. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone - but take some layers!
