Seal Safari


Come and visit the seals off Whitstable on our RIB takes up to 12 passengers to Horse Sands between the Isle of Sheppey and Faversham to see a large colony of Common Seals

We want you to enjoy your trip with us so please bear the following in mind:

  1. Due to the nature of the trip everyone needs to be a minimum of 4ft/120cm tall
  2. We do not recommend you travel if you have any historical or current backbone conditions or complaints. 
  3. We do not recommend you travel if you are pregnant
  4. The sea is an ever changing environment and the vessel may be subject to unpredictable movements
  5. Although we can only take 12 passengers, the boat is equipped with 14 jockey seats (imagine riding a horse, google "RIB Jockey Seats" for more info) where you have to lift your leg over and sit astride 2ft 3inches/70cm high, so please make sure guests are aware of this and we'd recommend not wearing dresses/skirts
  6. We do also have a 4 person bench seat behind the skipper, but spaces are limited
  7. The entire trip takes about 50 minutes
  8. If you would prefer to visit the Maunsell sea forts click here.
