About Beans Boat Trips
Beans Boat Trips offer a fantastic opportunity to see the seals and birds close up at Blakeney Point without disturbing them.
One of our 5 licensed boats will take you into Blakeney harbour and head for the far point, (we don't go out to the open sea) here we sail very close to the seals and there is ample time for photographs and the knowledgable crew are happy to answer any questions.
The seal colony is made up of common and grey seals and number around 500 so we generally always see some. The common seals pup between June & August, & the Greys between November and January. The far Point is also a great place to see the migrant birds, the Terns (common, sandwich, little and artic) are regular visitors to Blakeney Point from April until late summer, these birds can be seen from the boat and also from one of the hides onshore.
The National Trust took over Blakeney Point in 1912 and is an international breeding ground, for not only the terns but numerous other sea birds including thousands of ducks and geese throughout the winter months.
We include landing on Blakeney Point on certain trips when the tide and weather allows (usually 1/2 to 1 hour), this is added to the seal trip which on its own lasts for about one hour (more details on the website!)
Seats are limited so to avoid disappointment we advise you to telephone and book your trip in advance.

Ever thought of hiring a boat all to yourselves? Perhaps a birthday, anniversary, hen party etc or simply a quiet trip to relax and unwind. Beans Boats will try wherever possible to accommodate you
Having 5 boats ranging from 12 persons up to 50 persons we are able to fit your group to the right size boat. This makes it cheaper for you as you don’t have to pay for unwanted seats. All our boats are licensed by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, are fully insured and carry full lifesaving equipment. The experienced and knowledgeable crew will be on hand to answer any questions and make you trip as safe and enjoyable as possible.
As far as we are able, your trip can be tailored to suit your specific requirements. For example, you may wish to have extra time at the seals, or longer time on Blakeney Point or simply spend time cruising around the harbour.
