Farne Islands Boat Trips
Wildlife Voayges of Discovery
The Farne Islands are home to one of the most exciting sea bird colonies in the United Kingdom and is surrounded by the beautiful Northumberland coast.
Located a mile and a half to four miles offshore the Farne Islands remain home to one of the most exciting seabird colonies in United Kingdom. Today, the reserve is owned & managed by the National Trust. In addition, it’s also home to one of the largest populations of grey seal colonies in the northern hemisphere.
The nutrient rich waters which surround the Farne Islands provide sanctuary to a wide variety of wildlife. So whether your passion is whales and dolphins, sea birds, rocks and pinnacles or just stunning scenery then this is one of the UK’s top destinations of places to visit.
To the west of the Farne Islands you can experience the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and European Marine Site (EMS) which displays one of the finest landscapes in the country. The AONB was officially designated in 1958 and covers 39 miles of coast from Berwick to the Coquet estuary. Within this stretch of coastline is some of the most dramatic coastal scenery in the country. Ashore, we also have secluded bays, golden sands, coastal and inland walks, castles and a range of activities along with fabulous accommodation and food.
We are proud to be guardians of these waters and hope that you are inspired by our information and hopefully you will soon join us, so that you can experience for yourself, this very special place.
