We’ve seen many seals on every Scroby trip so far. In less than perfect conditions, it’s taking much longer than our planned three hours which can be a long time for some passengers. We are working with East Suffolk Council on a way to make this trip shorter (more news to follow) so it may well be back in the future. If you’re interested in seal watching, check out our Scroby Sands Seal Watching Trip instead!

Seals on horsey beach


Take an exciting sightseeing and scenic nature boat trip with us taking in the most Easterly point of the UK and Gulliver wind turbine. See the erosion at Corton before passing the beaches of Gorleston and Great Yarmouth, then past Scroby Sands and the wind farm to Horsey Beach at speed to have some quality time with seals. We slow right down when we get anywhere near the seals to avoid disturbing them and usually anchor with the engine off to let you have a good look and get some amazing pictures and make memories.
