“Great view of the white cliffs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Me, the wife and our 2 teenage daughters all had a great time on the Dover Sea Safari.
Weather probably has a big say as to whether or not you'll have a good time but we had lovely weather which just added to the actual trip.
Really interesting facts given during the trip and some really great sights seen.

“Exciting RIB trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Went on this trip with my wife as a birthday celebration. Real enjoyed the exciting rib ride, the views of Kent coast from the sea and the meander up the river stour to see the seals. Saw 48 including some lovely pups.
A really worthwhile attraction from Dover.
Excellent competent, friendly and informative crew.

Highly recommended for all ages, staff were excellent - extremely helpful and very well informed. Only downside may be price a bit high for families, but worth the price overall. Thanx danny and skipper pete,

“Fantastic day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Really recommend it, can't believe I've lived here all my life and not done it before (didn't know about it). Can understand why it's the No1 attraction in Dover on here. Took our 4 year old son who had a great time too. Will definitely be back to do it again.

“Exciting and enjoyable trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We experienced very good customer service while using our Groupon voucher. We thought that using the voucher provided great value for money, however, at full price would be a little on the expensive side. Despite this, we would thoroughly recommend the Dover Sea Safari trip. We've lived in the area for 7 years and yet we learnt a lot more about Kent's coastal towns and the White Cliffs.

All staff were very friendly and keen to help. Safety procedures were explained thoroughly and they ensured that we felt comfortable all the time. We took our own coats, but used their waterproofs in the end because they provided better protection. Our own coats could be left behind the reception. Although it was a very hot July day on land, we found that having a cardigan and the waterproof was still necessary at sea.

The outward journey was relaxed and informative, but upon our return, we sped our way back from Deal to Dover in no time at all, which was very exhilarating, including some showing off by James with his figure of 8!

Plenty of photo opportunities, but just make sure that you protect your camera from splashes when the boat slows down!

Overall would recommend this for tourists and locals alike.
