Norfolk Seal Trips

BISHOP’S BOATS, two of the larger traditional clinker-built wooden ferries take you on a trip departing from the picturesque Blakeney harbour or Morston quay.

Trips vary, depending on the tides, seal trips are approximately one hour, seal trips and landing on Blakeney Point upto two hours, where landing is usually optional. After winding up the creek, you head to the far point where you can see the seals in their natural habitat (we do not go out to the open sea).The seal colony consists of approximately five hundred, and is made up of common and grey seals, further information on the seals and birds will be given by the experienced crew. Have your cameras ready as the boats are able to get very close to the basking seals.

Landing trips continue onto Blakeney Point Nature Reserve, owned by the National Trust. Stroll up to the old lifeboat house, now an Information Centre. Many species of birds can be seen, so its worth bringing binoculars. Hides are located at prime sites just past the Lifeboat house, though most birds can be seen from the boats.Well behaved dogs are welcome if kept on leads.
