Beans Boat Trips


One of our five purpose built ferries which are licensed by M.C.A and hold full safety equipment which depart daily from Morston Quay and will take you into Blakeney Harbour, (we don't go out to the open sea). We sail very close to the seals and there is ample time to take photographs and the knowledgeable crew are happy to answer any questions. Here there is also a good opportunity to do a spot of birdwatching. The seal colony is made up of common and grey seals and numbers are around 500 so we can GUARANTEE you will always see some, The common seals pup between June and August, and the grey between October and December. After seeing the seals we will land you on Blakeney Point when possible depending on the tidal conditions. The Point is a breeding ground for migrant birds e.g common, sandwich and arctic terns. You can also visit the Old Lifeboat House, which is an information centre. SEE THE SEALS OR YOUR MONEY BACK!! Booking strongly advised, please phone 01263 740505 or 01263 740038.
