We went on the coast tour today , & it's truly brilliant, loved it . We are from Dover & still found some facts we didn't no ! Great team, Danni & James looking after us & great value :) Highly recommended , but not if you've got a bad back it's full speed back & very bumpy :)

I really couldn't be happier from start to finish. We found an offer through Groupon and the booking process from gaining the code to processing it through Sea Safari's website was seamless and we had a good choice of available sailings, all very good. We travelled on the 14.00 30/07/14 White Cliffs and Beyond. On arrival all the staff were... More

Yesterday we went on the Sea Safari with Will and Stu and it was awesome! Will was great, telling us a bit of the local history (I would like to add the type of history which Kids would be also be interested in e.g. The war, boat wreckage, Goodwin sands etc.) in a relaxed friendly manor. While the skipper also... More

The knowledge of history from our guide was impressive, as to was the journey back!!! It made us feel alive and a little wet!! Jackets were provided! We stepped off at... More

Fantastic afternoon on board - great fun and just what Dover needs and deserves. Grew up in Dover and moved to Australia 11 years ago but have never seen the harbour, White Cliffs, St Mags, Kingsdown or Deal quite like this. (Just a quick glimpse on day trips to France). Our guide Danie told us many tales and facts we... More

Excellent trip from a very professional crew. A very informative commentary from Danni and even if you've lived here all your life you will very probably see or hear something you've not experienced before. Seals in the harbour, getting close up to the breakwater, tunnels in the cliffs, fantastic views of the coastline and then an adrenaline rush as James... More

We undertook a sea safari on the 23/07/14 to celebrate my birthday. With beautiful weather we departed Dover and followed the coastline up to St Margarets Bay and then onto Deal. The journey is broken up on route with historical information at the various sites you pass. Upon reaching Deal we went under the pier and then headed at speed... More

This was an excellent trip and refreshingly not touristy. The historical information was really interesting but not too much to take in. We were taken very close to the shoreline to see the white cliffs and a considerable distance along the coast to Deal. Further out to sea we had an exciting speed rush. A great experience all round.
