The trip was fantastic. It was exciting for the kids (3,4,5,8) and the skippers knowledge of the seal colony was good. An all round professional, friendly and polite team. Many thanks

What a fantastic experience this morning in perfect sunshine. After leaving the main harbour we sped down to Pegwell Bay to sea the seals basking in the sun. I definitely will return to do another of the trips. BRILLIANT.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip to the Goodwin sands on 19th May. The tour guides were friendly and it was very well organised. Cannot wait to do another trip with Dover Sea Safari!

Myself and 3 friends had a great time on this trip yesterday. James was a great host. The seals were very cute it was lovely sitting there floating about watching them. Would highly recommend going on this trip!
