What an amazing trip this morning out to the Goodwin Sands.

I shall definitely be back (with a camera next time!), and will also be signing up for other trips. A sheer delight... More

Myself, my son, my daughter and her boyfriend went on the Sea Safari yesterday, with guide Danni and skipper Pete. Fantastic trip. Both crew members were friendly and reassuring. Pete's boat skills were superb and Danni's knowledge of the Cliffs and harbour were excellent. After learning about the cliffs from the sea we then took a walk from Dover to... More

My visit to the Goodwin Sands was a gift from my family for my 70th birthday. It was an excellent trip, fast and furious and run by a very professional team, I am now looking forward to a White Cliffs experience!!!!! Once again thank you to the Dover Sea Safari team for making this a memorable experience.

My 18 yr old son & I took the Seal Safari trip in August and had a blast! Great views of the White Cliffs! Spent about half an hour up close to lots of Harbour seals-very adorable creatures! Lots of big waves on our way back as the tide was coming in-crazy fun time in the boat. Guides were friendly... More
