Sightings guaranteed – or FREE trip!

BOOK ONLINE NOW

We have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close Seal watching Harwich due to the Corona Virus pandemic. 
Don’t worry if you have already a booking, our business is strong and we have the finance in place to reopen our service whenever it is safe to do so.

At the moment we accept bookings from May onward but we will constantly review the situation.

All up to date information will be published on the website.

There are currently over 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.

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? – We have a cabin, if the weather isn’t perfect we will still depart. The seals love rain, wind, sun and clouds and we love it too!

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.
