I took my wife to do this trip as I had been previously with a group. I knew that she would like it but as it had been a few years I really hoped it hadn't changed too much. I need not have worried!
The booking process was very easy. The woman on the phone was both friendly and informative. This extended to when you actually go and pick the tickets up. The pub is very easy to find and is just inside the village of Morston. There is plenty of parking. The process of collection is really easy and the people extremely friendly.
Morston Quay itself is about a two minute drive from the pub. Just a friendly heads up that it is £3.50 to park (or free to National Trust members!) However, if it is warm enough there are plenty of walks to be had around the area so you can make more of a day of it, if weather permits!
The people running the trips were very friendly. They even bought their dog Tess along who was extremely friendly!
We were lucky enough to be able to land at the end of Blakeney Point. The first landing in 2013! It is well worth a bit of a walk around as you get to see lots of different views. As it was a cold day 30 minutes was just the right amount of time.
It was then onto the main part of the trip. No matter what time of year you go there is always something to see! We were very lucky as the seals were very active on our trip. I think they were just trying to keep warm like us! We were given plenty of time to see them and the boat went up and down the point a fair number of times. Therefore, it didnt matter what side of the boat you were sitting on as you all got a good view!
All in all this was an amazing trip. One thing to note is that if you dont have 'sea legs' then getting on and off the boat is interesting. However, the staff are very helpful in giving you a hand to grab onto as you are getting on and off.
I have heard that they are thinking of stopping these trips. In case they do I would advise going really really soon! It would be a shame if it has to be stopped though. Its a real experience seeing them in their natural habitat!
