Seal Safari

After arriving at our harbour hut you will be shown aboard our beautiful vintage lifeboat “The Chieftain” to join our cruise across the bay during which we will be happy to explain the history of our boat and the coast around us or you can just relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the journey.

Once we arrive at the seal colony sandbank you will have plenty of time to take as many photos as you wish. From July onwards you will hopefully get to see some of their newly born pups on the sandbank and in the water. We will get close enough to see the seals and their pups however we always ensure that our presence does not disturb them.

Our return journey will take us closer to the Whitstable shoreline for a chance to see this historic town from the sea.

People always ask if we will be guaranteed to see the seals however as with any wild animals in their natural habitat it cannot be certain. Up to now we have yet to have a trip where we haven’t seen them.


Adults – £30

Children five and under –  £15

Whole boat charter (up to twelve passengers) – £300

For younger children we ask parents/guardians to consider whether a trip of this length without facilities or shelter onboard would be suitable. Please feel free to contact us to discuss further.
