Go to Norfolk at least once a year and alwys when we are there to see the seals with Beans.
Cannot be faulted. Some years ago when there was a disease wiping out a lot of seals they told us we might not see any before we booked- but we saw a few.
Simply too good to miss

Excellent views of the seals, set off in a very timely manner and they took us up and down plenty of times so got some great shots on the camera, and there was lots of opportunity to do so from both sides of the boat.

Only gripe is the tillerman stood at the back smoking both on the way out and the way back and if you were sat next to him you got a face full of it. Not nice to be trapped on a boat with it and especially in such a beautiful place with the fresh sea air etc. where you want to enjoy the atmosphere, not hold your breath! If I'd known in advance that the crew would be smoking during the trip, I would have picked a different company.

This trip starts on National Trust property, so there's a car park with a charge. It was good to discover that the disabled Blue Badge is accepted (which cannot be said for most of the coastal car parks in Norfolk). The trip was well organised, and the open boat was fully equipped with safety gear. People on both sides of the boat got to see the seals, as the guide manoeuvred the vessel round to give all passengers a full view. I had just been given a new camera complete with an extra zoom lens. My photos of the seals were outstanding, and I even managed to snap one as its head bobbed up out of the sea. The price was £10 per head, and I thought it was a really good tenner's worth!

Good value for money, great commentary with lots of humour.
Booking was really easy, just phone them in advance and book then pay when you arrive.
