2 Hour Duration

"Our ethos is in sensitive wildlife observation without disturbing natural habitat"

Our mission on this trip is to observe Common Harbour Seals, thus making our Secret Seal Safari the most popular tour with families of all ages. Named by the BBC wildlife film crew in amazement at finding seals in this location when filming 'Autumn Watch.

Accidental Nature - Secret Seals of the South East'.


Dover Sea Safari does not just whizz you across Pegwell Bay. We bring you up under the iconic White Cliffs of Dover and along the breathtaking White Cliffs Country coastline.


Upon reaching Walmer, we head North. Passing Deal and taking in a close view of Deal Pier. Onward through to Sandwich Bay, entering the mouth of the River Stour through Pegwell Bay.

The lovely Pegwell Bay is a large nature reserve, known for its migrating wading birds and wildfowl, plenty of time for a bit of spotting if you'd like to bring your binoculars. 


It’s here we find our 'Secret' Seal colony.


Engines off and drifting by in silence you can observe their natural inquisitiveness towards people while basking on the river bank and popping up around the boat for a good look at us.


After about 20 mins viewing we return with a thrilling blast back to Dover Marina (weather permitting).

COVID-19 SAFE - passenger numbers are currently reduced to 10 per trip aboard Dover Explorer and 6 per trip aboard Wetwheels to ensure 1metre+ between separate households

To ensure any trip is viable for us to operate on the limited numbers, we have had to introduce a flat rate basic pricing structure:
