Recommend you do this trip while visiting the area. You get up really close to the seals and they even came almost up to the boat for a nosey. You can take your dog too!

Thank you for taking the time to give Bishops Boats a nice review. We often get very close to the seals, especially in the water.

Having decided to take our 5 year old on a seal trip we collected a leaflet from our Hunstanton hotel and duly booked our Bishops boat trip. The first notable inconvenience with using Bishops is that you have to drive to Blakeney to collect the...More

The trip takes around an hour and we were within feet of the seals both on the shore and in the water. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable about the seals and local area. Kids loved it!

A terrific outing to see the seals off Blakeney Point. The boat departs from Morston quay, a stunning setting. You are able to get fairly close and have a great view of these inquisitive creatures. A wonderful time

Our third visit to see these adorable seals. First time with Bishops. Very good trip I think whichever company you pick would be equally good. Marvellous view of both the Grey and Common seals. But another major delight were the hundreds of pairs of nesting...More

Did not feel a trip to Blakeney was complete without seeing the seals. The booking was easily done over the phone and tickets collected at Blakeney quay. You can then either drive or walk along the coastal path to Morstan quay. It is a lovely...More

The attraction was to sail the creek from Blakeney; limited trips are offered from here rather than Morston depending on tide conditions. My trip was cancelled due to high wind, but I want to complement their customer service. Communication was great, both in person on...More

Thanks you for your kind comments even though you did not get a trip. Our much smaller boat from Blakeney is very vulnerable to cancellations on a windy day. Perhaps next time.
