I really couldn't be happier from start to finish. We found an offer through Groupon and the booking process from gaining the code to processing it through Sea Safari's website was seamless and we had a good choice of available sailings, all very good. We travelled on the 14.00 30/07/14 White Cliffs and Beyond.

On arrival all the staff were polite and welcoming, even to my lively 3 and 6 year old children. We were all given excellent protective gear and taken over to the rib. Again this whole process was relaxed and friendly and I really couldn't rate the crew any higher what's more safety seemed to be paramount. The trip itself was amazing and I'm so pleased we finally booked. A good balance of fun and high speed combined with the odd stop for very interesting information about the area (some of which we didn't know despite being local ourselves) told in a really lovely manner.

Thank-you so much Sea Safari we will definitely be coming back again.

Yesterday we went on the Sea Safari with Will and Stu and it was awesome!

Will was great, telling us a bit of the local history (I would like to add the type of history which Kids would be also be interested in e.g. The war, boat wreckage, Goodwin sands etc.) in a relaxed friendly manor. While the skipper also made the journey really exciting. The views you get from the sea of the white cliffs, the caves, the amazing bays along the coast.

I would definitely recommend this activity. You can get longer journeys to the Goodwin sands which I will do next time.

If you are visiting East Kent you can't miss a trip with Dover Sea Safari. A very professional and safety minded crew who want to make sure you enjoy the whole experience from start to finish. There are different trips to choose from, we took the watching the seals trip which was around 2 hours. We saw loads of seals up close and it was a joy to see. Book ahead because I know they get busy.
