Generally all boats go from Morston Quay NR25 7BH and sometimes for small private charters from the ticket collection point at Blakeney Quay. There are car parks at both quays. They are National Trust car parks so free for members, non members need to pay. For ticket collections at Blakeney we suggest you do not enter the car park, just pull up on the roadside and pop out for your ticket.

Morston is a little over 1 mile from Blakeney, there is a lovely walk along the coastal path. It takes about half an hour so for moderately fit people.

Please do not just turn up, you may be lucky and get a no-show or cancelled ticket, but that is unlikely. You will also need to be aware of the very latest Covid requirements. We require at least 2 hours’ notice to change or cancel a booking. If you do not show up or we are unable to resell unwanted tickets, you may receive a bill for any unsold seats.

You need to be able to walk unassisted for 3-4 minutes from the car park to the boats. As a general rule if you can get in and out of a car you will be able to get in and out of the boats.

We carry full lifesaving equipment which is available in an emergency. We are licensed by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, and they do not require our passengers to wear lifejackets.
