Try Blakeney Point Seal Trips this summer
One of the unique treats of North Norfolk is the seal colonies. Blakeney Seal Trips are very popular and rightly so. The Seals live just off the coast on sandbanks in The Wash and on Blakeney Point. Blakeney Point is undoubtedly one of the best places to see them close up. There are trips that leave Blakeney Quay and Morston.
