About Discovery Seal Trips
We are based at Essex Marina on Wallsea Island and offer trips into the Rivers Crouch & Roach to see the resident seals. Trips lasts approx. 2 hrs and we sail up to 3 times per day depending on tides and weather. We launch from Wallasea but also do pick-ups on the town jetty at Burnham-on-Crouch.Our trips take us around the RSPB reserve on Wallasea where a variety of birdlife can also be seen.

We honestly had the best morning on the discovery today looking for seals. It was fantastic and are still buzzing about how great it was hours later. We saw lots of seals and other wildlife. The boat was very clean. The staff were really lovely and friendly, plus very knowledgeable. Great value for money. This is a must do, you won’t regret it.

Fantastic afternoon out watching the Essex seals lounging around on the banks of the rivers Crouch and Roach, great friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff, plenty of time to see the seals swimming and playing on a lively spacious boat. Thoroughly enjoyable

An amazing wildlife experience with charterdiscovery@gmail.com, we had the pleasure as VIPs due to other party not arriving. Great weather, perfect conditions to view lots of mumma seals, pups, many Egrets, single Spoonbill, cormarents, gulls, greylegged goose and gosling's. Selina & skipper were very welcoming, good safety do's & don'ts, thoughtful attempts to allow us photo opportunities without disturbing/unsettling the seals. Do this again, highly recommend 👏👍⛵
