SORRY THIS TRIP IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. INNER FARNE AND STAPLE ISLAND ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC DUE TO AVIAN FLU CONCERNS. WHY NOT TRY OUR HOLY ISLAND CRUISE INSTEAD.
Staple Island has dramatic views across all the Islands and is known for its vast seabird colonies, especially those of the Auk family such as Guillemots, Razorbills, and Puffins. Puffins are the numerous birds that nest on the Farnes with over 20,000 pairs nesting on Staple Island alone! A boardwalk over the top of the Island takes you straight through the nesting Puffins and this is where you can get close to some of Britain’s most spectacular breeding seabirds. This is a very rugged island so please remember to wear good shoes as its uneven underfoot. It’s not suitable for infants.
Landings on Staple and Inner Farne are subject to Avian Flu with the National Trust monitoring the situation in April. Customers will be notified in advance if the islands are closed during their planned visit and alternatives offered.
