Holy Island with Ocean Explorer
COVID 19 update. Due to social distancing not being possible on this boat – this trip is not available but we do have Holy Island trips available on our larger hard boats.
Trips sail from May – October as scheduled.
Child prices are for age 5-15. No concessions.
A high speed trip to Holy Island/Lindisfarne onboard our Rhib Ocean Explorer. This boat carries 12 persons and due to the fast, bumpy nature of the ride, it is not suitable for dogs, under 5’s, during pregnancy, or anyone with heart/back/neck problems.
Leaving Seahouses, we sail around Inner Farne viewing many nesting sea birds then visit the Grey Seal colony at Megstone before sailing up the coast to Holy Island. The journey to and from Holy Island provides a good opportunity to see porpoise and dolphins. Two hours are spent ashore, allowing time to explore this historic, magical island. Popular places to visit are the Priory Museum (English Heritage), Lindisfarne Castle (National Trust), St Aidan’s Winery (where a free sample of mead can be enjoyed), and the Museum of Island Life and Visitor Centre. Holy Island also has several cafes, pubs and shops. (Opening times of the attractions vary so please check before sailing).
On our return journey we sail along the beautiful coastline allowing magnificent seaward views of both Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castles.
