Providing boat services for sightseeing trips, seal and wildlife watching tours, 3-hour fishing trips, as well as boat chartering for film and television, safety boat, and work boat services. Located in Ramsgate's Royal Harbour.

Must be pre-booked. 

Seal & Wildlife Tours

Take a trip to an active seal colony inside a National Nature Reserve which also has the benefits of a wide range of birds including the rare ingret. We time these trips to coincide with tidal flows for the best chance of seeing these wonderful mammals in their natural habitat.

Ideal for all the family and brilliant for photographs, so remember to bring your camera so you can capture your experience onboard the boat.

Fishing Trips

Fishing parties of up to 12 persons from beginners to experienced anglers are welcome. Guidance available if needed. Fishing rods, bait and tackle are all provided. See our photo gallery below for the varieties of catches aboard the Sea Searcher. All day fishing trips available on request.

Accessible Trips

The boats can be made accessible for up to 6 wheelchair users + 6 carers. Must be group-booked in advance. Please enquire if you are a single wheelchair user, or have particular needs.
