Holy Island

The best of both! The Farne Islands and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
Departing from Seahouses, we will do a full tour of the Farne Islands to see the seabirds and seals without landing.

We’ll then head to Holy Island when the tide is high and the island is cut off from the mainland so that the true peace and tranquillity of island life can be experienced.

Three hours are spent ashore, allowing time to explore this historic island. Popular places to visit are the Priory Museum (English Heritage), Lindisfarne Castle (National Trust), St Aidan’s Winery (where a free sample of mead can be enjoyed), and the Museum of Island Life and Visitor Centre.

Holy Island also has several cafes, pubs and shops. (Opening times of the attractions vary so please check before sailing). If you are wanting something to eat while you are on the island, we would highly recommend booking before you arrive

On our return journey we sail home enjoying seaward views of both Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castles plus Stag Rock Lighthouse. Fingers crossed for dolphins along the way! This trip provides an excellent opportunity to see the Northumberland Coastline from a different view, with some stunning scenery along the way.
