We went on the 12:30pm boat tour which would also stop at the Farne Island to see birds. Our tour was slightly delayed due to the very low tide. This turned into a 15--20 minute wait, but my husband and I didn't mind. Our boat captain toured us around different rock outcrops to see the bird life and seals up... More

For just £15 we were out for hours, with a long stay on Inner Farne (extra if you're not a member of National Trust). Got really close up to wildlife including seals, puffins, terns and a whole host of other seabirds, with someone walking the boat talking to small groups all the time. Very helpful and informative. Would do this... More

Having decided we would do a short boat tour, the excellent reviews led us to choose Serenity Tours. We were not disappointed! From start to finish the whole experience was superb. Whether making a reservation by phone (no upfront payment), collecting tickets at the harbour-side kiosk or on the boat itself, everyone we encountered were delightfully friendly and enthusiastic.

We took the tour that landed on the islands - take a coat with hood or something to protect your head if the Terns are nesting as flying in and pecking your head is very common. We had a great view of all the birds and the seals. The Boat Captain spotted me using my 300mm lens to get some... More

We took two cruises with Serenity. The first by catamaran to see the seal colony and thousands of sea birds. (The sunset cruise). The second to actually land on Inner Farne right in the middle of the bird colony. What an experience! Both cruises were lovely. Both skippers were amazing in their knowledge of the sea, birds, seals and everything... More

Afternoon'sailaround' cruise was very good. Excellent sightings of sea birds including terns, guillemots and puffins but the seals stole our hearts, basking on rocks and watching us form the sea! Well worth it.

We took the two and a half hour cruise to the Farne Islands including the one hour landing on Inner Farne. It was amazing!
