Covid-19. Staple Island and Inner Farne remain closed to the public. During this period we are operating Grey Seal Cruises, Holy Island trips and Private Charters. All trips have reduced numbers to maintain social distancing and face masks/coverings are mandatory for over 11's. Online booking recommended.

Please Note: No trips Saturday and Sunday due to gale force winds.


Our main booking office is conveniently located for our boat fleet at Seahouses Harbour. We have a second office close to the harbour at the entrance to the village’s main car park – just opposite the public toilets. Our contact details are as follows where we look forward to providing you with our immediate attention.

Seahouses is a popular resort so it does get busy at peak times. Pay and display parking is available at the harbour, above the harbour and also in the main village car park which is situated off the roundabout between Barclays Bank and the public toilets. The coach park and overflow car park is situated to the rear.

Those navigating here by SatNav should use the postcode for the harbour which is NE68 7RN.
