Climb aboard the 'SEAL SPOTTER' for a private wildlife watching cruise from Harwich to Hamford Water Nature Reserve in Essex.
- Harwich (Essex)
- Gift Voucher valid for 12 Participants
This private seal watching experience, in Essex, is a chance to spot some of the UK’s cutest marine wildlife. Take a 1.5-hour cruise through the Hamford Water Nature Reserve and get up close to its resident colony of curious seals!
This is a private excursion for up to 12 passengers. Trips depart from Harwich and pass the port of Felixstowe on their way to the reserve. Aboard the aptly named ‘SEAL SPOTTER’, you’ll enjoy a bracing open water ride followed by a gentle cruise through the tidal creeks of Hamford Water. Here, both harbour and grey seals are regularly spotted resting on the mud banks. The local population has grown steadily since the 1980s, and you’ll have a great view from on deck. What’s more, all tours come with a ‘seal guarantee’ which means – in the unlikely event of no sightings – you’ll receive a voucher for another (free) trip!
Seal watching excursions are great fun for animal-lovers of all ages, and an Experience Days voucher is a unique way to mark a special family occasion.
