Plan your seal trip

Book in advance and arrive early

The seal trips are very popular, must always be booked in advance and run at different times according to the tide. During busy periods the car park at Morston Quay can be busy so allow plenty of time to arrive, park your car and get to your departure point on time for your trip. Car parking is free for all National Trust members or £6 all day for non-members.

Come prepared

Even in the summer is can be a lot cooler on the water with spray coming over the boats. Please ensure you have enough clothing and wear sensible footwear as it can be slippery underfoot. The duration of your seal trip can vary in length from an hour to two and a half hours with a drop off on Blakeney Point so take a drink and snacks with you. Or why not grab a drink or a tasty snack from our refresments kiosk at Morston Quay.

Bring a camera or binoculars

There's a lot to see whilst on your trip so don't forget to bring your camera to capture those special moments. You'll get up close and have great views of the seals but you may wish to bring binoculars if you have them.
