Take a boat trip and see 37,000 pairs of puffins in the breeding season from May to July and have an unforgettable adventure. You will also see 23 species of other birds, making a total of 100,000 nesting seabirds and their chicks on these rocky islands. You can also observe a colony of Atlantic grey seals and their pups relaxing on the stones as you pass by in a boat. More than 1,000 pups are born at Farne Islands every autumn.
Put your hat on, step off the boat and walk around Staple Island from May to July and see the puffins, shags, guillemots and seals close up, but beware of the Arctic Terns who protect their chicks if you walk too close!
The Farne Islands are possibly the most exciting bird colony in England, and on the boat you will see some fantastic views of the Northumberland coast and the countryside as well. Visiting these islands and their inhabitants can be an awesome experience, whether you go in the breeding season or not, but don’t forget to take your binoculars with you and your camera.
This sea-rocking adventure at Farne Islands is ideal for the whole family and one that will be remembered for a long time.
