Our Tips For Choosing The Right Boat Tour To The Farne Islands

Here are our tips for choosing the right boat tour to the Farne Islands

Off the coast of Northumberland in the United Kingdom, the Farne Islands are a picturesque archipelago and a well-liked spot for boat tours. Choosing the best trip for you can be challenging with so many options available. 

Here are our suggestions for picking the best boat excursion to help you maximise your time in the Farne Islands:

Consider the wildlife– The Farne Islands are home to an incredible variety of wildlife

including grey seals, puffins (season permitting) and a whole host of charming sea birds including guillemots, razorbills and arctic terns. When choosing a boat tour, take your time to consider what you’re most interested in. All of the trips will show you the birds and the seals and many combine this with added extras such as a visit to Holy Island/Lindisfarne or combine wildlife spotting with a sunset cruise.

Check the tour duration-Boat tours to the Farne Islands vary in length from 1-hour Rhib rides on a speed boat to 4.5 hour Holy Island trips, think about how much time you have available and choose a tour that fits your schedule. Longer tours typically offer more opportunities to see wildlife and explore the islands, while shorter tours are great for those who only have an hour or so to spare.

So, by considering the wildlife, the kind of experience you’d like to have and the tour duration, you’ll be able to find the perfect tour for you and make the most of your visit to this stunning part of the world.
