Sunset Cruise

COVID 19 During this time we are operating with reduced numbers.  From the 19th of July, face coverings/masks are not mandatory but are recommended.  Do not sail if you or your family are showing any symptoms of Covid 19.   We cannot accept responsibility for any subsequent Covid – 19 infections.

These trips are available mid May – mid September.

Child prices are for age 5-15.  Under 5’s are classed as infants. No concessions. Dogs are welcome on this trip.

A relaxing end to the day as we enjoy a sunset cruise around the Farne islands.  During the breeding season from May to the end of July there are thousands of nesting birds at the Farne Islands which include Puffins, Guillemots, Terns, Kittiwakes, Shags and Cormorants.

There are also an estimated 3 to 4 thousand Grey 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.

Following your cruise around the Farne Islands, we continue to sail along our beautiful coastline to enjoy scenic sunset views as the sun sets behind the magnificent Bamburgh Castle, with the occasional visit from our local dolphins.
