We braved the windy weather to visit the Farnes while we could. Our trip only had four punters on it and two guides so we were treated to their vast knowledge of the area and despite being out of season for the best of the birdlife, we were treated to some great views of seals and the islands themselves.

Excellent trip that surpassed expectations. Really enthusiastic and knowledgeable crew who were keen to point out wildlife. Saw lots of sea birds and a huge colony of grey seals. Also saw a peregrine falcon sitting on one of the islands. Advice: Even although it was a nice fairly warn day, it was cold out on the open sea so take... More

Last Friday I went on the trip round the Farne Islands. The weather was not good but the trip was brilliant, even saw a Puffin. The guys were very informative and clearly loved their work. Take waterproofs and something warm but it is well worth going. I would recommend the Serenity Boats every time.

We booked a suset trip to the farne islands as we have been before and wanted to see the area in a new light. The running of the trip was excellent, easy to book online and could pay on arrival. The cataraman was a mechanical marvel and handled well by the skipper. We were able to see the birds and... More

This is the second time we have been on Serenity 2, and we booked again as we had such a good time the first time. This time was just as good. The guys really know their stuff and the commentary was as informative as the first time. The boat is spotlessly clean and easy to get around. Would definitely chose... More

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
