Seal colony in Norfolk

Seal Boat Trips to Blakeney Point

Overview

Join one of the daily boat trips from either Blakeney or Morston harbours to see the seals and birds in their natural environment at the National Trust run Blakeney Point.  Excursions run every day between 1 April and 31 October.

Blakeney is on the Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coastal Path, so combine the trip to see the seals with having a walk along the coastal path.  If time, visit the remains of the Blakeney Chapel, which is also out in the Nature Reserve.

Visit the National Trust website, or see the NT's suggested list of Seal Trip Providers web page
