The trip was well organised and we were able to get close to the seals without causing any distress to the animals. The trip leader was knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife and the audio commentary on the trip to and from the area frequented by the seals was informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip and we are intending to go out again sometime during the winter months to see the area when the seal population is at it's largest.

Had a great trip on ‘Gloria‘ to Hamford Water to see the seals, the boat was clean and tidy and thanks to social distancing we all had a lot more room! Crew were very helpful and informative as we travelled to and from Harwich. Will definitely be going again.

The seal watching trip was well organised and the crew were helpful and friendly. We were given information on the trip and binoculars to see the seals more clearly. We were lucky enough to see many seals bathing in the sun as well as a couple swimming nearby. A very enjoyable and unique experience.

Great first trip out to see the seals and pups yesterday, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the provision of binoculars to use on the trip was a welcome bonus. Skipper and mate were really knowledgable and happy to chat to passengers on board too. There were only 16 of us on the trip and everyone was sat apart to adhere to social distancing measures. All in all, we had a great boat ride and spent time looking at the seals and pups which is what we went to see. Thank you for a great trip!

Had a great time out on the water yesterday watching the seals...what an experience. Kids (aged 13, 11 & 6) loved it and the information given out on the way out and back made it even more interesting. Would definitely recommend...we'll be heading out again without a doubt. Thanks for having us and for making everything feel very safe covid-wise.
