“Fantastic experiance with a lovely crew”
“A seal watching trip is a must and Bishops Boats offer a great tour. About 25 of us got to see seals swimming in the estuary and laying idly on the shore, sunning themselves and scratching. The Skipper gave us some local history and info on the area, making the trip interesting and fun. It took just over an hour, with plenty of time to view the seals up close. You leave from the far end, past the last car park, but come in nearer the main car park. So depending on how far you wish to walk at either end of your trip depends on where you park your car. The car park costs £4, don’t pay to park when you pick up your preordered ticket as you will only be there for a few mins. There are toilets, a shop selling icecream/hot drinks and cakes and pastries. There was also a stall selling crab sandwiches. If you go on a late trip(returning at 5.30) the shops will all be shut. The toilets will still be open, I think. Enjoyed it immensely, glad the weather was nice for us.”
Would definitely recommend this trip. The crew were very knowledgeable and chatty. We saw lots of Seals basking on the sandbanks and also following the boat in the water. The trip lasts an hour in total which is long enough to keep it interesting for the kids. Quick tip, tickets have to be purchased from Blakeney Quay which is roughly one mile away from where you board the boat. When you arrive at the Quay there are several companies offering trips. Would recommend using this company.
“Brilliant boat company”
Our second trip with bishop boats to see the seals at Blakeney. Can’t fault them
Great staff both on and off boat, very helpful lady on phone – man at ticket sale point was lovely and guys on boat full of interesting facts, not to mention helpful and funny too with jokes thrown in!
Our party ranged from 6 to 70 and we all enjoyed the trip and would recommend and indeed go again ourselves.
