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 and thousands of breeding Sandwich terns that migrate there every March until late August.

Blakeney National Nature Reserve has been managed by the National Trust since 1912. The reserve is part of both an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and a World Biosphere Reserve.

Booking ahead by telephone for all seal trips is essential to avoid disappointment, furthermore we can also advise you about the seal trip. Tickets must be collected from Blakeney Quay no later than 45 minutes before sailing time. 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 (recommended) 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. …”

Superb trip – informative, relaxing and fun  Myself and my two sons aged 10 and 12 took an 8.30 trip in late August on Bishop’s Boats. The whole experience was 10/10…”
