I did this trip with my partner and we absolutely LOVED it!! It had a good mix of thrill and interesting facts. We saw coast lines, cliffs, towns, huge houses, ship wreck, even a migrant boat 😬 We reached Deal pier when we turned around and went back to Dover where we started at HIGH SPEED! It was so fun I had to take my sun hat off as it would’ve flown off. The tour guide/skipper was very kind, knowledgeable, funny and made everyone very relaxed Tip- even if it’s the hottest day and you think you won’t need warm clothes you will! It was 27° the day we went and on the water it felt a lot colder and people were still putting their jackets on half way through as we realised we needed them. We will definitely come back for the seal tour !!

We are a family group of 8 and booked the White Cliffs and beyond trip whilst here on holiday . What a great experience! We've done many previous trips with Dover Safari (highly recommend Goodwin Sands) and this trip didn't disappoint. Ben was a great skipper and host, really knowledgeable and we had a great time in fabulous conditions. Dover Sea Safari are a friendly and professional company and have perfected the skill of combining safety and fun. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them if you want to see the beauty of the cliffs and coastline from the sea and learn some fascinating facts at the same time.

Really interesting way of seeing the costal sites. Lots of facts and adrenaline thrills to go with. Do think staff might warn passengers about the figures of eight and speedy turns as some of our party didn’t enjoy that bit.

An excellent trip along the Kent coast to Sandwich to see the seals. Worth every penny. Was lucky enough to have perfect sea and weather conditions but it was still an exhilarating ride. The crew were friendly and were very respectful towards the seals by keeping their distance and noise/wash to a minimum.

This was the only trip that the Dover Sea Safari Offer that we had not yet taken and once again it didn't disappoint. Unlike previous years the desk was now outside and we watched the previous trip returned wearing life jackets which were sprayed/cleaned down and left to dry. Ready for our trip we were fitted out with life jackets and a short walk to the new marina. A safety briefing and off we went. The rib bounces a little which we both love, it never felt unsafe. 45 minutes later we were engines off drifting with the tide in the mouth of the river Stonar at Sandwich. We counted around 50 common harbour seals, adults and pups who were totally unfazed by our presence. Even a lone grey seal came swimming over. Plenty of time to take loads of pictures whilst we were told all about them by our knowledgeable guide and skipper. The trip was timed perfectly as the tide came in so as the seals moved off we made our way back, tight to the coast to Dover Dock. A great way to spend a couple of hours and even though we have been on all their trips we will be out with Dover Sea Safari again.
