This was our second trip with Serenity and as fantastic as ever. Our first was in August and our daughter loved seeing the seals so much that we decided on a second trip during October half term to see the seal pups. The Wednesday and Thursday sailings unfortunately didn't happen due to the fog and sea conditions but on Friday... More

Having looked into the boat trip on here I decided to plump for Serenity Boat Tours and have to say I was not disappointed. We ended up doing a mini tour round the islands with the best bit seeing the many seals and their new pups. Ok the channel across to the islands was a bit rough but the crew... More

I stayed with my husband in Seahouses last weekend and had a wonderful weekend - the highlight was going out in Serenity II on the Farne Islands tour. We were so lucky and privileged to see lots of seal pups which had been born only a few days before and were relaxing on the rocks! Lots of inquisitive seals were... More

Stayed at their B&B with wonderful hospitality and an excellent breakfast. The harbour is a 3min drive. Can parked early or the spaces disappear quickly. The diving is spectacular with the seals and other wildlife like crabs. It can be cold so please wrap up.

OK... we went in August. Peak season. Could find a parking space within 1/2 mile of the boat dock. I was panicking I'd be late - they told me to get there at 12:15 for a 12:30 departure. Dropped off the family - parked the car - ran like heck to get there at 12:40 - and phew - they... More

We both thoroughly enjoyed the boat tour out to the islands to see the seals just a shame we were a bit earlier to see any pups but still amazing to see them all swimming in the sea as it was high tide. Our two English Pointers went along for the trip and whilst Lilly was not very happy Digby... More

Easy to book and we could take the dogs who enjoyed it as much as we did. Up close to the seals was an experience never to be forgotten and great commentary from the crew kept us well informed of current and past history of the Farnes. Will never forget this trip simply fab!

Can't recommend these boat trips highly enough . I took my family on the seal cruise when on holiday in Berwick and we a had such a wonderful time and managed to take lots of pictures of the seals . Very reasonably priced and gives you the opportunity to do something totally different and see some exceptional scenery .
