Pelagic Trips onboard Ocean Explorer
These trips sail August – October as scheduled.
Only suitable for adults and children 10 years old and over. No concessions. No dogs.
This is a 4 hour non-landing trip on board our high speed Rhib, Ocean Explorer. We sail to fishing/feeding grounds beyond the Farne Islands to search for sightings of offshore birds and larger mammals.
Steaming much further out to sea, we never know quite what visual treats we’ll find – the unknown is all part of the excitement!
Previous highlights have included sightings of Arctic, Pomarine and Long-tailed Skuas, Sooty Shearwaters, White-beaked Dolphins, Harbour Porpoise, Minkie Whales and even rare sightings of a Humpback Whale and a Killer Whale.
Due to the fast and bumpy nature of a Rhib, this trip is not suitable during pregnancy, or for anyone with neck/back/heart problems.
