Sunset Splendour from Mid May to Mid September

Our Sunset Cruise is available from mid-May to mid-September, giving you the perfect opportunity to witness the magic of the Farne Islands bathed in the warm glow of the setting sun. This enchanting experience is a favourite among visitors seeking a tranquil and picturesque way to end their day.

A Breeding Season Spectacle

During the breeding season, which spans from May to the end of July, the Farne Islands come alive with a vibrant display of nesting birds. You’ll have the privilege of witnessing thousands of nesting seabirds, including Puffins, Guillemots, Terns, Kittiwakes, Shags, and Cormorants. It’s a captivating sight that nature enthusiasts and bird lovers will treasure.

The Farne Islands Seal Colony

The Farne Islands are also home to an estimated 3 to 4 thousand Grey Seals. As you cruise around these remarkable islands, you’ll have the chance to spot these graceful creatures basking on the rocks, particularly during low tide when more of the islands are exposed. With over a thousand Seal pups born each Autumn, the seal colony at the Farne Islands continues to thrive and grow.

Scenic Sunset Views and Bamburgh Castle

Following your exploration of the Farne Islands, our journey continues along the breath taking coastline. Here, you’ll be treated to scenic sunset views as the sun descends behind the majestic Bamburgh Castle. It’s a sight that evokes a sense of awe and wonder, with the occasional delightful visit from our local dolphins, adding an extra layer of enchantment to your cruise.

Join us on our Sunset Cruise for a peaceful and memorable experience as we celebrate the beauty of the Farne Islands and the splendour of a Northumberland sunset. Whether you’re a nature enthusiast, a photography enthusiast, or simply seeking tranquillity, this cruise offers an unforgettable journey through nature’s wonders.
