About Temples Seal Trips & Blakeney Point
Daily boat trips from Morston quay to see the seals on Blakeney Point in their natural environment. We are on the north Norfolk coast (A149), with our ticket office in the Anchor Pub. We are a family run business, comprising boats and pub, and love the chance to share our unique way of life. Blakeney point is also internationally famous for migrant birds, an amazing breeding and feeding ground for terns, oystercatchers, ringed plover, and many more. A must for all bird lovers. Seals are in their abundance, Common and Grey, with pups being born summer and winter. Nov and Dec are notable for their thousands of seals along the shore, a truly spectacular sight. We are a happy bunch, with lots of information to share, and with a true passion for the area. The pub has been in the family for over 100 years, and the boats have been started up and run by the Temple family for well over 70 years. Our skippers are exceptional in their ability and experience. We hope to see you!

The trip was just as described. It was easy to book. Jane was excellent communicating, very responsive and easy to deal with. Our original date was cancelled because of the weather and we got an early text message from her. Skipper Derek was experienced, knowledgeable and humorous. His mate Alfie also knew his stuff. Both were caring. I am clinically vulnerable and they found us a safe place to sit. All groups were sat apart. I would definitely recommend.

I had never been to Norfolk in my life until last week and being an amateur photographer I was looking forward to it. We had had a great week and booked a trip with Temple Seal Trips at Blakeney Point. They where very good and organised in getting all their clients in the boats. We where put in a boat with a local guy who introduced as Derek and was extremely knowledgeable, professional, courteous and friendly. He explained exactly what he was going to do and why he was going to do it and this was all to do with steering the boat with the tide and any currents and winds to try and make the most of the trip comfortable and dry. Derek had an incredible amount knowledge about all the wildlife from the seals, wildfowl etc. when we got out to the seal area there was ample time to photograph and observe not only seals on a sand bank but they where popping up around the boat. Really good trip and company and highly recommended it. If I ever go back to Norfolk I will definitely do another trip.

A really enjoyable trip. Plenty of seals basking on the sand bank and swimming out to take a look at these weird creatures in their boat. Jason our skipper was great and told us about the local coastline and landmarks as well as the seals and other wildlife.
