Seal on Blakeney Point

The best way to see the wildlife on Blakeney Point is to enjoy a seal trip, with Bishop’s Boats. Blakeney Point has one of the largest Grey seal colony’s in England, and thousands of breeding Sandwich terns that migrate there every March until late August. Common seals spend a lot of time hauled out on the sandbank where they have their pups from June until the end of August. Our boats spend plenty of time getting close to the seals which will either be basking on Blakeney Point or popping up around the boat. This is closest you will ever get to see seals in their natural habitat.

Our friendly and knowledgeable crew will guide you throughout your trip on the beautiful North Norfolk water.

Well behaved dogs are welcome (at our discretion). For passenger comfort, Bishop’s Boats operate a non-smoking policy on-board

For all bookings to see the seals, please be aware that we are operating at a reduced capacity for passenger safety and comfort. Please have a quick look at our FAQ’s and news page for the latest information.

A Fabulous Experience.  Although we have been to this area on holiday several times, we have never taken a boat trip to see the seals. …”
