The best of both worlds with this fabulous trip to the Farne Islands and a landing on Holy Island
Departing from Seahouses, we will sail to the Farne Islands and take a tour of the islands seeing all the seabirds and seal during the breeding season, before our journey to Holy Island. This provides a good opportunity to see the Northumberland Coastline from a different view, with some stunning scenery along the way.
When we arrive at Holy Island the tide will be high and the island is cut off from the mainland so that the true peace and tranquillity of island life can be experienced. Two 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, but social distancing will still be in place. (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 we will have seaward views of both Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castles. As well as Stag Rock Lighthouse and you never know we might stumble across some dolphins along the way.
This tour takes approximately 4 to 4.5 hours and well-behaved dogs are welcome onboard!
