GREY SEAL CRUISE
A great opportunity to spend more time viewing the true residents of the Farnes, our large colony of Grey Seals.
This 1½ hour cruise sails around all of the islands giving
good views of the nesting birds on the cliff faces and viewing the Grey
Seals at several vantage points along with an informative commentary
There are an estimated 3 to 4 thousand Seals at the Farne
Islands and large numbers can be counted basking on the rocks,
especially at low water when more of the
Islands are exposed. With
over a thousand Seal pups born each Autumn our colony is growing
strong. This trip gives excellent value for money and is suitable for
all ages and available all year round.
