Temples Seal Trips
Collect your tickets from the Anchor Pub, from where we will direct you down to Morston Quay to catch our red and white boats, either The Four Sisters, or Morston Ferry.
Our fully qualified crew will take you out to Blakeney Harbour sharing their local knowledge with you en route
.All trips operate within Blakeney Harbour, we do not venture out into the open sea.
The Temple family have been operating boat trips for well over 60 years, with skipper Jim starting when he was just 9 years old!! The whole family help run the business with future generations often on board learning the ropes!
Temple’s boats are red and white:
Morston Ferry, a 26ft purpose-built boat, The Four Sisters, our spacious 50 seater, and Lily Too, our newest addition to the fleet, a 12 seater which we use for those extra busy times. Lily Too is also available for something a little bit different! You can book the whole boat and we can offer tailor-made exclusive trips; including meals on board, picnics on the Point, business lunches, using the whole tide, longer excursions etc.
The seals, both Common and Grey can normally be found basking on the end of Blakeney Point.
We have mostly common seals in the summer months, who have arrived at Blakeney Point in order to have their pups. The pups start arriving about June, and will continue through until the end of August.
The Grey seals have their pups in the months of November and December, so Christmas is a good time for viewing if you wrap up warm!
Seals are very inquisitive animals, so will often swim around the boat. This is a perfect time for photographs, so remember your camera! The views are stunning and fresh air of the North Norfolk coast is delightful.
The trip is a unique experience for all ages – a rare opportunity to visit wildlife in its natural surroundings.
On the way home we also take the chance to land you on Blakeney Point when the tide allows, which is a chance for a leg stretch on a beautiful strip of beach.
Blakeney Point is also an internationally recognised breeding and feeding ground for migrant birds with a large Tern Colony.
We can view these very closely from the boat, with the adults feeding their partners on the nest. We also watch the young chicks being fed, and then observe them being marched down to the waters edge as the summer progresses.
We also have Oyster Catchers and Ringed Plover nesting on the Point, so we do ask that great care is taken not to disturb any bird life when you land.
You will have time to walk to the old Lifeboat house which is now an information centre owned by the National Trust.
