Dave Gray's Boat Trips have been running happy families between Coquet Island and Amble harbour for just over forty years now, so you can be sure they know a thing or two about a thing or two!
They'll guide you over to the island where you can view up to a whopping forty thousand nesting sea birds including the Sandwich, Common and considerably rarer Roseate Terns; Eider Ducks; Kittiwakes; and Puffins!
So, it's well worth taking binoculars, especially seeing as on the eastern side of the island you can also find the resident Grey Seal colony and observe their playful antics. A joyful trip in almost all weathers, your whole family will find this a refreshing and inspiring experience.
Your vessel will either be the classic G Fisher vessel or the RNLB Beryl Tollemache which is a restored ex life boat. Either way there's plenty of fascinating little details about the boats to learn if you can twist the kids toward the educational side instead of watching for otters. Good luck!
