Attraction Information

The beautiful Farne Islands lie 2 to 3 miles off the Northumberland coast between the charming fishing village of Seahouses and the awesome Castle of Bamburgh. As well as being one of the most famous Sea Bird Sanctuaries in England there are also a large colony of Atlantic Seals regularly spotted here too!

Join one of the numerous cruise trips held year round and explore this most glorious of archipelagos aboard Billy Shiels' fleet of seagoing motor vessels maintained to Marine Coastguard Agency standards.

You can visit the Staple, Holy or Farne Islands by water; take a return trip with a full day's bird watching and photography in between; dip below the surface for a diving excursion or get into serious waters with a 4 hour pelagic adventure! Whatever your age, mobility or level of adventurousness, as long as you love water and nature you can't go wrong here.

The trips are operated on a daily basis for most of the year but you will still need to pre-book to ensure your place and submit contact details in case of bad weather. Be sure to dress appropriately too!
