See the Seaside and Take to the Water
North Norfolk is renowned for its stunning coastline, with spectacular views of the ocean. Why not take to the water and enjoy some boat tours and activity courses?
James and Victoria Cowan, from Blakeney, are the owners of Norfolketc, a family-run water sports provider.
“In 2005 we created a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) sailing and powerboating centre, offering courses, tuition and boat charter.
“As a sailing and powerboating school, we use our environment to inspire and teach individuals how to sail in an idyllic yet challenging environment.”
What to Expect
Escape the buzzing crowd of Blakeney and choose from a range of activities and courses. These include seal trips, powerboating, sailing and paddle boarding.
“Try sailing instruction, where you can enjoy private and exclusive tuition for you or your group. Or, see Blakeney Harbour and the seals by chartering a Norfolk Oyster day boat, for an unforgettable experience. In addition to the private tuition and charters, we also run RYA two and three-day sailing and powerboat courses.”
Things to Do
Norfolketc offer unique experiences in the beautiful surroundings of Blakeney. Explore the sights by sea and learn something new. With a helpful team on hand to guide visitors, the experience will be tailored to each person.
“The team consists of passionate sailors who make it their mission to deliver a unique course, lesson or charter in the beautiful surroundings of Blakeney Harbour.”
“Taking people out on the water offers a unique experience to all. Seeing the seals under sail with one of our Norfolk Oyster Charters is a wonderful way to view the harbour and enjoy sailing.”
