If public trip is full, then please contact us for Private hire. email harwich@sealwatching.co.uk

There are currently up to 250 seals in the Walton backwaters, a healthy breeding population which has risen from only 5 in 1986.

We take you through the backwaters behind the Naze, known as Hamford Water Nature Reserve, where the seals enjoy resting on the mudbanks.

In addition to seals, a variety of birds can be spotted including the Wigeon, Pintail, Ringed Plover, Curlew, Dunlincan, Sandpipers, Gannets and Arctic Skuas.

Our summer boat is a 1944 timber vessel and is unfortunately not disability friendly. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Sightings guaranteed! – So far every single trip has seen lots of seals but if you don’t see seals close up you get a free trip!

What if it’s raining? – If the weather isn’t perfect we will still depart. The seals love rain, wind, sun and clouds and we love it too!

If it is windy you get wet from the sea splashing into the boat, sometimes a little and sometimes a lot. Please leave a dry change of clothes in the car.

Departing from Harwich this is a truly wonderful  90 to 120 minute trip. Our seal watching boats have on-board toilet facilities and safety equipment.

We do not allow dogs on public trips. Only on private hire.
