We had a fantastic hour on a seal watching tour with Stuart. The ex SBS inflatable boat was incredibly exciting, taking us at high speed to the Pegwell marshes. We got very close up to the seals and learnt lots about them. We felt totally confident with Stuart at the helm and greatly enjoyed his boat skills and local knowledge.

This trip was part of a 4 day celebration for a landmark birthday. The age range of our party of 9 was from 25 to 86 (!) and each and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Fully briefed and reassured by the lovely and rather handsome skipper, Stuart, we set off on a slightly heavy sea to the Stour estuary and were delighted to see the seals basking in the sun. Along the trip, Stuart shared not just natural history but also nautical and local history of the area which was most informative. The experience of the rather heavy sea on return was exhilarating and exciting, similar to a roller coaster ( but we all felt safe with Stuart's navigation and seamanship). Yes, we all got a bit wet, but hey what did we expect..... even a rather damp 86 year old grandma hasn't stopped talking about it and wants to do it all over again! In fact we all do! Thanks to all at Rib Request we had a memorable and fun time.

This is a fantastic trip! I would recommend it to anyone! When I went out there were approx. 77 seals...all as interested in us as we were in them. The 'Rib Request' crew went to every effort to ensure that the trip was accessible for all and thoroughly enjoyable. I loved it and would definitely go again. :)

We went on a Rib Request seal trip, and it was an extremely enjoyable experience. We got to see a total of 76 Seals up close and personal along with an exhilarating ride back to the harbour. The captain had a lot of knowledge about the Seals and the surrounding areas. It is a definite must do for anyone going to Ramsgate!

Went out today, with my friend and God daughter. Had an absolutely fantastic time on a gorgeous day. We saw 76 seals, apparently the most seen. Stuart was friendly, educational and amusing, making the whole experience great and extremely good value for money. Exhilarating journey back.. fabulous, thank you. I would like every one to try this trip. We have said we would for years and never got round to it as locals. It has put such a smile on our faces, we will recommend it to every one that we talk to and will certainly be going back again!
