Discover The Wonders Of Farne Island Seals

Set sail for an unforgettable adventure amidst the natural wonders of the Farne Islands! Whether you’re an avid bird enthusiast or eager to witness adorable seals in their element, our boat cruises offer a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of this breath-taking destination.

Puffins in Paradise (May – July)

From May until the end of July, the Farne Islands come alive with thousands of nesting birds, and among them, the beloved Puffins steal the show. These charismatic seabirds, with their distinctive orange beaks, are a sight to behold as they go about their daily lives on the islands. Our boat cruises during this season promise a chance to witness these charming creatures in their natural habitat.

Seal Pupping Season (Late October – January)

As the seasons change and winter sets in, the Farne Islands become a haven for another remarkable species: Grey Seals. From late October until January, you can witness the heart-warming sight of baby seals during the seal pupping season. These endearing pups, with their innocent eyes and playful antics, are an absolute delight to see.

The Ultimate Cruise Experience

Our 1½-hour cruise offers a comprehensive tour around all the islands, providing excellent vantage points to observe the nesting birds on the majestic cliff faces. Throughout the journey, our knowledgeable guides provide informative commentary, sharing fascinating insights about the Farne Islands’ rich wildlife and history.

The real stars of the show, of course, are the Grey Seals. With an estimated population of 3 to 4 thousand Grey Seals at the Farne Islands, you’ll have ample opportunities to spot these magnificent creatures. They can often be seen basking on the rocks, especially at low tide when more of the islands are exposed. Witnessing these seals in their natural habitat is a truly memorable experience.

A Growing Seal Colony

The Farne Islands serve as a crucial breeding ground, with over a thousand seal pups born each autumn. This thriving colony is a testament to the pristine environment of the islands and the dedicated conservation efforts in place.

Our boat cruises offer excellent value for money and are suitable for all ages, making them the perfect family outing or a solo adventure. Plus, you can embark on this incredible journey all year round, ensuring you don’t miss out on the Farne Islands’ natural wonders, no matter the season.
