Seal Trip

Have the experience of a lifetime with our Seal trip

The Farne Islands are a group of islands located off the coast of Northumberland in the UK. These islands are home to a diverse array of wildlife such as seals, making them a popular destination for wildlife enthusiasts and boat tours.

At Billy Shiel Farne Island Boats we want to give everyone a chance to see the beauty that The Farne Islands has to offer 

For those who would love to see the grey seals in person, our Grey Seal Cruise with seabirds is a fantastic investment. This trip offers great value for money, is suitable for all ages, and is available all year.

There are an estimated 3 to 4 thousand Grey Seals on the Farne Islands, and large numbers can be seen basking on the rocks, particularly during low tide when more of the Islands are exposed. With over a thousand Seal pups born each Autumn, our colony is expanding, and you could be one of the lucky ones to see them in their natural habitat.

This time of year is a great time to take the trip as you can find seabirds such as Terns, Kittiwakes, Shags and Cormorants. For those who are keen to see Puffins, they have already arrived at the islands alongside thousands of Guillemots.
