A very popular attraction for visitors to Blakeney North Norfolk is a boat trip to see the seal colonies at Blakeney point.

The boat trips are offered by 3 or 4 local companies and vary, depending on the tides, seal trips are approximately one hour, seal trips and landing on Blakeney Point up to two hours, where landing is usually optional.

After winding up the creek, you head to the far point where you can see the seals in their natural habitat (the boats do not go out to the open sea). The seal colony consists of up to about five hundred, and is made up of common and grey seals - information regarding the seals and birds will be explained by the experienced crew on-board. Have your cameras ready as the boats are able to get very close to the basking seals.

Landing trips

Landing trips continue onto Blakeney Point Nature Reserve, owned by the National Trust. Stroll up to the old lifeboat house, now an Information Centre. Many species of birds can be seen, so its worth taking binoculars. Hides are located at prime sites just past the Information Centre, though most birds can be seen from the boats. Well behaved dogs are welcome if kept on leads.

Dress appropriately

Warm or windproof clothing is advisable unless it is a very warm day. If it is hot & sunny remember to put plenty of suncream on and take a sunhat or sunglasses.
