Boat trip to see the seals

Whitstable boat tours & trips Voted Best Family Boat Trip: Seal Safari.

A popular family boat trip is to see the Seals between Faversham and Isle Sheppy on horse sands. This boat trip is often smoother for boaters scared of rough conditions due to the seals basking in a flat water estuary. It might be choppy leaving Whitstable harbour. Then it will become very flat water as we travel up the coast between the thin strip of water just off Faversham.

phography with Whitstable boat trips

Whitstable Boat trips Photography at the Maunsell sea Forts Thames Estuary.

Here at Whitstable boat tours, we also make specialist boat trips; for example, the world war 2 maunsell forts, (pirate radio stations) are very popular with photographers. England is often a little grey and rainy, equating to some great photos. In summary, the more overcast and moody the weather, the better those photos look. So you are lucky we live in the United Kingdom as it is often moody and atmospheric. Scott Amling from the USA and Philip Berner from Australia recently visited us. Both photographers said the forts were awesome. You can read about Scott’s trip in his blog

The boat costs for a60 minutes is £400 for up to 12 people.
