All reviews captain colin pegwell bay hour trip great trip bird life local history saw seals river trip seal trip close quarters worth doing great commentary sea birds grey seals crowded boat harbour master enjoyable trip
We took the 2 hour trip to see the seals.
This was a very amusing and informative trip. Captain Colin is an encyclopaedia of local history and throws in lots of amusing facts.
We did the lunchtime trip and took a packed lunch. We saw...More
The river trip came recommended by friends and in some aspects it was amazing, in others it was poor. We were kept waiting for forty minutes as the boat wouldn’t start and no one made any attempt to tell us there was a delay. We...More
The trip left at about 10.00. Was very relaxing as we headed to the mouth of the river a
stour. The boat was very comfortable and the guy in charge provided some great commentary. It was a shame he did not do more as he...More
It's not the boat's fault our trip had a lot of children who would not do as they were told. Nor was it the boat's fault that the adults in charge of said kiddiewinks carried on with their very important loud conversations and ignored the...More
The good bit. We saw over 100 seals at close quarters and plenty of varieties of sea-birds. We would give the wildlife 5 stars. Captain Colin's commentary was informative and generally engaging.
The not so good bit. There was nobody checking who had reserved a...More

We booked for the river bus with great anticipation even though £20.00 per person seemed a tad steep.
We were hoping for some hidden treasures and boy were we disappointed.
To begin with the boat was over subscribed. The captain re-assuring is that the boat...More
Joined a tour with a crowded boat, including a party group.
We saw the seals, lots of them! BUT!
We couldn’t hear the commentary over the noise of the party group. I am sure that this is not a regular occurrence, but what we could...More
What a fantastic way to spend a few hours. We had no idea that seals are to be seen here so we’re glad that a relative treated us to this excursion.
No money was taken till the end of the trip and at the end...More
