Lovely little trip.i see folk have complained about not seeing seals close up. They are wild animals they don't perform for us.we went after the storm and saw some in the water and 1beached. Seeing any wild animal however far away is a privilege. The guys on the monster are great I use a wheelchair and they were brilliant. I do have 1 complaint though and it was the same the last time we did the trip too!. The music.it is so special being out on the Wash away from all the noise along the prom listening to the birds , the music spoils it. Maybe it would be better to give a little story about Hunstanton pointing out landmarks. I regularly go on a trip in Berwick on tweed to look for dolphins, I've been many times still not seen a dolphin but I did learn little tales about Berwick. Thank you to the Wash monster for a great trip and polite helpful staff. Maybe you should tell the moaning minis how much fuel is used going out to the seals!

Absolute rubbish. Complete waste of money. You're so far away from the seals you can't even see them through the blurry binoculars you share around. £32 for a couple and you seem bugger all. Go to horsey gap and actually see deals instead. IT'S FREE.

We took the costal tour trip on the Wash Monster - I love Hunstanton but my partner had never seen the cliffs and this was a great way to experience them! Very friendly and informative staff, we learned a lot about the local area and had excellent views. Thank you very much! A great experience for all the family.

Very average, over priced boat trip - you literally drive in a straight line out to the sea and see seals through binoculars before driving back to the shore. Our kids are 3 and were bored but maybe older children would like it. The poor review, however, is due to the horrendous customer service. I reserved a week in advance but was told on arrival our tickets had been given away. I actually thought the man was joking as we were there on time (despite him trying to say we were literally 2 mins late) and because the way he said it was so rude that I couldn’t believe customers would be spoken to that way. He said he had been trying to call me to get me to pay in advance (despite being told we could pay on the day by the lady I had been dealing with on the phone) and I had been ignoring his calls and “that’s what you get”. I showed him my call record showing they hadn’t called me and, upon checking, it emerged he had written down the number from his office lady incorrectly and been calling the wrong number. At this point, I would have expected an apology and a change in attitude but the gentleman (I use this term very loosely) in the kiosk continued to be aggressive and insisted it was my fault because I should have kept ringing them to pay, despite being told I didn’t need to. I’m astounded this man has a customer facing role in any company. Finally, I emailed the owner of the company prior to reviewing to give him the opportunity to respond. However, his response was that I should be grateful that they allowed me to pay full price to go on the next tour. Baffled by this response but also now understand the company’s customer service ethos.
