The return trip was an exciting high speed run which showed the capabilities of the boat and the captain. A very good experience and well worth the money. I was looked after very well... More

Did this trip on a groupon deal and had a great time. We were really lucky with the weather but the guys were really informative and made the trip fun. Would highly recommend, I'd quite happily go and do it all over again.

We went in the Dover Sea Safari last year and went on the Seal watching one. Would recommend this to anyone of all ages. The kiddies loved it and they ranged from 2 years old to 12 years old. They especially loved the speed of the boat and going over the waves on the journey back to Dover. Our guide... More

Fpuind these guys after being ripped off by their competitors and were absolutely satisfied. Saw the entire length of the cliffs with a great commentary on the history. Top notch equipment and great captain. Also had a great tip on a local restaurant that was spot on!!
