About The Farne Islands

After our fantastic trip with perfect conditions in September 2015, we are already planning our weekend for 2017.

 

The Farne Islands are located just below the Scottish border on the east side of England and are known as one of the best locations in the UK to dive with seals. The visibility here is usually around 10 metres and you can experience some fantastic interaction with these inquisitive creatures. Just mind your fin tips…. they may be nibbled!!!

Dive Trip Details

 

We will meet at the accommodation in Beadnell near Seahouses on Friday evening or in the local village pub "The Craster Arms" for food and a few drinks!  The next morning after breakfast we will make our way to the harbour. This is where we will meet our skipper (Lee) and load our dive boat up. Lee is a very experienced skipper and will take us out to the best places for seal encounters. When diving with the seals it’s best to stay as still as you can. This way the seals feel safer in your presence and will come closer to play!

 

After a couple of dives with these inquisitive creatures, we'll be lifted aboard the boat (no climbing up ladders for us!) and make our way back to the harbour where we will unload our cylinders for air fills, ready for the next day. We'll spend the evening in Beadnell again where we will go for another meal at a local restaurant and obviously a drink afterwards.

 

The next morning it’s back to the harbour to the boat for some more diving with the seal pups.

 

N.B. Bring your cameras as you will have face to face encounters with seals! You will also need 2 cylinders for the boat dive as the boat doesn’t return to shore between dives.

 

You will also need warm clothes and a hat for between dives in case it is windy!!
