Very friendly staff from buying the tickets to the crew on the boat. Came round to everyone to introduce and to ask whether you'd done the trip before, and offering to answer any questions throughout. Lovely trip around the Farne Islands (1 1/2hrs) with commentary from the Captain. Beautiful boat, we went on Serenity 2. Overall good value and a... More

Had a wonderful seal watching trip with Serenity. The lady in the cabin was very helpful and we timed it nicely as there was a boat due to depart in the next 5 mins. Took us to various parts of the Farne islands, beautiful and dramatic scenery. Although if you sat on the left hand side you got a closer... More

Loved our boat tour - we chose the 1.5h nonstop tour as we had young children with us. It was wonderful - saw so many seal up close, and enjoyed getting splashed by the waves! We were on the catamaran, so didn't rock too much. Crew all very helpful and polite. Wear warm waterproof clothes and hats though, even on... More

We took the tour that lasted approximately 2hrs and went round all the islands. Captain Andrew and his mate Andy were very accommodating, they checked that people were happy during the trip, full of knowledge, and even redrying seats, as the spray splashed over. Even to the extent that they turned the boat around to rescue someone's hat that blew... More

Took this three hour trip with my daughter at the very end of July - and what a stunning experience it was! Very friendly, highly informative trip - the North East coast at its absolute best - rugged, unspoilt and marvellous. Although the day was rainy and the sea rather choppy, I barely noticed because the scenery and wildlife were... More

Great trip around the Farnes, saw loads of seals and the commentry was informative and interesting, I would pay just for the ride out, seeing Seals and Guillemots was a bonus. we were lucky to have good weather and a relatively calm journey

I'd really recommend this excursion. You're out for 3 hours including an hour on Inner Farne. The boat gets right up to the islands and there's lots to see. I;ve never seen so many seals! It was also fun visiting inner Farne which is compact so you can stroll round it to see the cliffs and the lighthouse. It's popular... More

A great experience from initial booking, to getting soaked in the spray on the return trip! There was plenty of opportunity to see the wildlife with the seals being a highlight for us. Knowledgeable crew on hand to point out the wildlife and give a bit of background to the human history of the islands as well. Take a second... More

Second trip around Farne Islands this year with these guys. Very friendly staff and crew. Excellent guides who are very helpful and happy to talk about the wildlife and history of the islands. Would recommend the seal trip as saw plenty of seals. Even the dog enjoyed the trip....Overall excellent
