The seals at Pegwell Bay have become quite famous in recent years and this is a good way to see them close up. The owner/ captain is mildly eccentric in a good way. The journey to get to the seals is longer and more industrial than you might imagine. You will see some historic features and plenty of seabirds before... 更多
On a day trip to Sandwich we enquired about boat trips from the quay. Captain Colin had just returned from a 2hr morning tour to see the seals at Pegwell Bay. Seeing my disappointment Cptn Colin kindly offered to give us a quick 30 min tour along the river. It was lovely to see several dutch barges being used as... 更多
Great way to spend a couple of hours cruising along the River Stour with the entertaining Captain Colin, who, in heroic fashion, also saved the life of a dying seagull caught in fishing wire, with the help of some very able fellow passengers. The seals were a sight to see all sunbathing on the bank and frolicking in the water.
The Sandwich Riverbus is a super experience for adults and children alike. The weather was amazing - the boat meandered down the river for an 50 minutes in sunshine past all sorts of history - which the captain explained to the adults and the children watched various wildlife like seagulls, egrets, herons, lapwings, cormorants and lots more. Then we came... 更多
This was a really interesting trip for people who have lived in this part of Kent all their lives but have never known what they have under their noses! Captain Colin is a mine of information on the history of the river and the wild life! If you think there may be little chance of seeing the seals or maybe... 更多
We did the Seal watching tour in July 2016 and found Captain Colin's knowledgeable commentary made the trip very interesting. Although we are local to the area, he told us a lot about the history that we did not know before. We also saw a lot of seals. Highly recommended.
I found the details online and phoned to book our trip; Captain Colin answered the phone immediately and booked us in for the following week; all we had to do was turn up at the right time. The boat holds 12 passengers. It was a really interesting trip, past the marina and then what was Pfizers, so quite industrial in... 更多
We phoned the number and texted as instructed on the notice at the boat and waited but no response. A shame as we really wanted to do a tour.
Captain Colin is a gem, so knowledgeable, really enjoyed his commentary. The deal is that if you don't see any seals, you don't pay, but we saw plenty at Peggwell Bay. Got close enough to get some good photos. Dress warm as it gets cold on the river
