Seals on horsey beach


For a fantastic day out seal spotting in Norfolk, take an exciting sightseeing and scenic nature boat trip with us, exploring the most Easterly point of the UK and the Gulliver wind turbine. Witness the erosion at Corton before passing the beaches of Gorleston and Great Yarmouth, then cruising past Scroby Sands and the wind farm to Horsey Beach for 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, allowing you to have a good look, capture amazing pictures, and create lasting memories.

Mailing List

These trips tend to be run at short notice because we need a suitable weather window and we know there are a lot of seals at Horsey (at some times of year there are literally none unlike Scroby). There is no obligation in signing up; you’ll just get an email if we run another trip and you can book if it suits you.

Have you considered our Scroby Sands Seal Trip? We run this regularly and it can be easily booked online! We often see many more seals at Scroby and the journey time there is much shorter (whilst still having the same amount of time with the seals). This trip is also much less intrusive on the seals.

If, however, Horsey is definitely the one for you, please visit our Sign Ups page to register your interest in being on the next trip.
