'A brilliant experience!!'

A really brilliant experience! I took a party of Brownies and although the tide was right out we travelled along the sandbanks stopping off to have a run around on the beach.
We saw seals and starfish on the beach. Staff were very friendly and informative.
Would definitely go again

'Excellent trip'

Born and bred in Norfolk and never been out on the wash monster! We went as a family of four and we all enjoyed it. Great staff, all the guests on the boat were looked after. The commentary was funny and we were given loads of interesting facts. The seals were lovely to see and we were able to get close to about 34 on a sand bank. It was a great experience. The amphibious vehicle is an unusual way to travel when you are at the seaside. Well worth a trip.

'A fantastic afternoon activity!'

We came to Hunstanton to celebrate my girlfriends birthday with the idea in mind to do something fun and interesting. When walking along the sea front we came across searles sea tours and thought why not!! When this amphibious vehicle arrived on the beach out of the sea, we knew we were in for a treat! The crew and staff were lovely and fun, they drove us out to sea where we came across a large group of seals. On the way there and back, they were very good at pointing out various types of interesting wildlife, all with a humorous punch line. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to do something different, wanting to see some interesting wildlife, or just wanting to take some lovely photos. It's extremely child friendly and an experience for all.

'Great Value on ex US Marine Vietnam landing craft'

This is well worth booking in advance early in the morning as this gets full quick, great landing craft and the sea tour is well worth it, great views from a classic craft my family loved it.

'Fantastic Trip!!!'

We had a great trip with this company,the staff were friendly and helpfull. We were doing a touring holiday of North Norfolk and spent a fantastic couple of hours on the trip.This being an outdoor activity on the Wash, you have to be prepared for all eventualities regarding the weather.My wife enjoyed seeing the Seals as well as myself and the children,However the main attraction for the boys (ages:46,13 &11)on the party was the actual Wash Monster, the ex Vietnam War LARC.What a piece of kit!!! We could of just spent an afternoon just going for a ride!!We enjoyed listening to the roar of its engines as it goes about its business and seeing do what it was designed to do rather than sitting in a museum!!Oops! did I forget to mention the Seals?It was lovely to see them in a totally natural environment,and the views over the Wash were stunning. Thank you for making our holiday really special.

'Seal trip in the Rain!'

Having been on the Wash Monster earlier in the week we decided on a longer 1 hour seal trip. It was absolutely TIPPING it down! Never fear - the lovely chaps provided us all with brollies and rain macks and off we went.

Great service by the crew and funny but informative commentary. We saw 25 seals too - nice and close up!

Our two little ones loved it and we were also allowed to take our doggies on board too.

A must do experience in Hunstanton.
