We booked the 10:30am 1 1/2 hr boat trip around the Farne Islands. Although it was pot-luck which boat company we chose, we think we booked with the best tour. The boat arrived promptly. It was a small twin hulled boat, meaning it was more stable in the water than the larger single hulled boats on other companies. Also having... More

My wife and 10 yo daughter traveled last Thurs as I looked after the dog and stayed ashore. They said the trip was really interesting and the crew very informative. Also at the price it is a no brainer really these days. You made a young girl really happy, thanks

Chose this boat as we had seen it close under the cliffs when out on other trips. Didn't disappoint, so close in we could have touched the cliffs. Birds were load and spectacular. Seals sunning themselves. Nice touch was the crew member working his way round chatting to everyone on the boat. Also as it wasn't full we could move... More

The experienced pilot took our boat carefully round the rocky coast while his colleague could not have been more informative - answering all our questions and indicating points of interest about the area's history and all the wildlife seen throughout the voyage. An inspirational trip!

Had the boat to ourselves as it was Feb. Wonderful trip round the Farne Islands. Never seen so many seals in one place. Friendly knowlegable skipper made this a trip to remeber

3 great trips out on Serenity II. Great service and a skipper who really cares about wildlife. The trips to Inner Farne are really comfortable. The sunset cruise was lovely. There's a toilet on board if you need it and the catamaran is really steady. Andrew and Andy look after their customers, turning the boat when you cruise around Staple... More

Travelling to this area for the first time and choosing Serenity after careful research on the internet, we were not disappointed! We had the most amazing trip out for the sunset cruise, seeing our first puffin in the flesh was quite incredible and Andrew's knowledge and enthusiasm for his 'job' was totally apparent.... he took us into every nook and...

Wonderful scenic and educational trip. The boat was modern and very smooth. Great for those photographers on board with ability to roam all around the boat. The skipper was very knowledgeable about the islands and wildlife, was patient with the questions and appeared to really enjoy his work and wanted his customers to get the very best experience. He manoeuvered... More

We visited the Farne Islands recently and decided Serenity would suit our needs. So glad we chose this one. We had a great run to the islands being given ample time to photograph the birds and the seals which we passed on the way to Inner Farne. We had an hour stay on the island which was brilliant including getting... More

I had read the reviews of other companies at seahouses but a few of them were a little unwilling when i explained I wanted my disabled daughter to come along. The owners of Serenity 2 couldn't have been more helpful, in fact the captain even told us the best day for the sea state. we arrived at the kiosk and... More
