With over 80 years experience of operating in Blakeney Harbour, a trip to the Blakeney Seals with Beans Boats offers a rare opportunity to get ‘up close and personal ’ to the resident Grey seal and Common Seal colonies without causing disturbance.

After boarding one of our five custom ferries at Morston we head up Morston Creek and out into Blakeney Harbour. Relax and enjoy the beautiful Norfolk Coastline from the shelter of the harbour or keep an eye out for resident and migrating birds.

As Blakeney Point is one of the most important sites for migrating birds in Europe, there's plenty to see on our way to the Seal Colony. Passing the old Blakeney Lifeboat station our crew tell you something of the local history and about the harbour before you arrive at the end of Blakeney Point where Common and Grey Seals can usually be found hauled out. We spend time getting in close and turning to allow plenty of opportunity for photos, inquisitive seals will also frequently pop out around the boat.

WINTER RATES (1st November - 31st March **)

Adults: £25, Children £15 (14 & under), Under 2's: free

** The MCA have decided to interpret current regulations during "Winter months" meaning we are now limited to a restricted number of passengers per trip and required to carry additional safety and sea survival equipment. The Grey Seal breeding season (November & December) is one of the most spectacular sights along the coasts of the UK so in order to offer trips during this period and to keep the business viable we are having to increase prices by a small amount.

We are working with the support of our local MP to allow us to return to our normal passenger levels as we have operated over the last 30 years and will keep you posted.

As seats are now limited - to avoid disappointment we strongly advise you to book

All our ferries leave from MORSTON QUAY see trip times. You will receive details of departure point, time and where to collect your tickets when you book. For more details Prices and Booking Page.
