From booking to looking after us on the boat Serenity did an excellent job. Particular care was given to asking each person what they were interested in and pointing out birds, seals, and other features. Remember to bring extra clothes, even in summer, it is always colder on open water. Also bring a hat for the turns.

What a wonderful experience, sailing out to the Farne Islands, close up to bird colonies, enjoying watching the cute puffins and seals bobbing in the sea. The guide was really interesting and very knowledgeable, and it was a lovely trip at a reasonable price, excellent!

We took a round trip with an hour on the Inner Farne island. The staff are helpful in getting you on and off the boat safely. The microphone was broken on the boat but the staff took the time to come round the boat and inform us of what we were seeing, which I found useful as I don't know... More

Its all been said in previous reviews, great boat very stable. Knowledgeable crew plenty of time taken around the islands plenty of info. Going ashore is a must but wear a hat. Great day out some good images of Seals, Arctic Terns, Kittiwakes, Razorbills, Guillemots, Shags and Puffins Thanks Serenity.

We chose this this company after reading the reports on TA. We were not disappointed and really pleased with our choice. We had come at this time of year in order to see all the seals and bird life nesting and breeding on the islands. We chose the tour that had a landing and walking on the inner Farne and... More

We went on the boat tour which lasted 1.5 hrs this means you do not get of the boat but is a lot better because you get to see more islands. Wrap up as it does get cold out at sea even on a warm day.

Visiting Northumberland I wanted to add a boat trip to our adventures and we weren't disappointed! Andrew was very friendly and knowledgeable, as was his right hand man. We took the trip that visited the several islands so we could get to see more and we weren't disappointed! The views were breathtaking, stopping at most of the them so Andrew... More

I had originally booked The Golden Gate but George had to change his schedule to take fresh water to the lighthouse and suggested that Andy on Serenity was the best option for me. Wow was he right!

We thoroughly enjoyed this one and half hour boat trip.We picked a covered boat which can help to keep you out of the wind.The skipper and crew were very friendly and helpful.Plenty of seabirds to see and up close too.Saw plenty of puffins and seals,everything we could have asked for.Highly recommend company and this boat trip.
