This tour is particularly suitable for the enthusiastic ornithologist and photographer or anyone who wishes to spend more time observing the wealth of nesting species. The trip departs daily from Seahouses harbour between 9.30 and 10am prompt and only runs during the breeding season (May, June and July). It lasts approximately 6 hours and allows 2 hours on Staple Island in the morning and 2 hours on Inner Farne in the afternoon. It is recommended you take a packed lunch as there are no facilities on the Islands. National Trust members land free of charge and non members pay a landing fee to the National Trust Rangers at each Island. This tour also includes a cruise around all the Islands to view nesting seabirds on the cliff faces and the Grey Seal colony at several vantage points.
Inner Farne and Staple Island are major sanctuaries in the UK for about 22 species of breeding seabirds, including Guillemots, Razorbills, Eider Ducks, 4 species of Terns and a staggering 70,000 Puffins.
