Join us in a truly magical and one of a kind boat trip experience to see thousands of seals in their natural habitat.

The labrador’s of the sea, these friendly marine mammals are always just as inquisitive as our customers, you’ll get lots of photos to show off to your friends.

We are lucky to see huge numbers of seals at all states of the tide, at low water they’ll be on the sand in the masses and at high water, they’ll be surrounding the boat!

*Weather Dependant means we require favourable weather conditions in order for the trip to be comfortable for passengers. This is normally determined by the wind speed/direction. If we think weather may be a problem, this will be communicated to you ASAP.

**Whilst this is a fast boat trip, we slow right down when near the seals and never get too close to them. Often, this involves us turning off the engine and letting the tide drift us down past the seals. Learn more about how we help protect and conserve our special environment and wildlife.
