Winter Tours for 2011/12

As the end of the season approaches we want to let you know that we do operate throughout the winter doing different kinds of trips.

Whether you want to see the Seals or take a longer tour around Holy Island. Then please just give a call or mail me as I would love to take you out.

As the Grey Seal season has now started we offer an 1.5 to 2 hour trip around the Farne Islands. Whether it’s to photograph those Seals and Seal Pups or just to see them close up this is a great time of the year. The Seals have now started to give birth, and will continue until mid December, then after that the Seals tend to gather in large numbers all around the islands until the end of March. During this tour we will take around all the islands viewing those passing birds.

Our other tour will be a 4 hour trip around the Farne Islands, viewing the seals and passing birds and it will include a tour Holy Island mud flats. Serenity 2 is very shallow drafted and we are able to maneuver the boat around the mud flats. On doing this we able to get closer to all the wildlife. After that we will cruise along the coastline viewing all the grebes, divers etc, before heading back to Seahouses passing Stag Rock and Bamburgh Castle from the seaward side.

For those Birders amongst us who are familiar with the MAGIC of Holy Island will know from experience that winter time holds a special aura when it comes to winter birding.

Our booking office down the harbour will be closed from November 1st, but don’t worry as we have a booking office and info centre on Seahouses main street beside Neptune Fish Restaurant.

During the winter period our licence is downgraded so we are only able to take a few passengers.

Our first winter 4 hour tour is on November 5th at 10.00am at a cost of £25 per person, with hot drinks supplied. We also have a toilet on board.

Please check my Winter Wildlife Tours page for more dates.
