This cruise has been created because we can’t land on the islands this year. It’s the same as the Grey Seal Cruise just a bit longer and we don’t start this trip until the 1st May to make sure all the seabirds are settled.
This Farne Islands tour is approximately 2 hours long and perfect for everyone to view and photograph the puffins, terns, kittiwakes (and more!) and the seal habitats too. It’s also a chance to view the magnificent scenery of the islands and Northumberland’s iconic coastline and learn of Grace Darling’s life-saving heroics. This tour is wheelchair accessible but only when the tide is in so we can pick you up and drop you off at the slipway. Please note that we can’t get extra wide chairs and electric wheelchairs onboard at this time.
Full commentary during the trip with our wildlife guides there to help you with any questions you may have.
