The best way to see the wildlife on Blakeney Point is to enjoy a seal trip, departing from Blakeney or Morston Quay. 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 30 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 advanced bookings to see the seals (recommended) please be aware that even if social distancing rules are relaxed in June, we will continue to operate at a greatly reduced capacity for passenger safety and comfort. Please have a quick look at our FAQ’s and news page for the latest information.
*Bishop’s Boats Guarantee – In the very unlikely event that you do not see any seals, we will offer a free seal trip another day, or give you a 50% refund.
