“Top skipper, top trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Third trip with these guys to scuba dive with the seals at the Farne islands. Great fun, safe skipper, super boat (with diver lift). Willing to spend his time understanding the needs of the customers, and tailoring the dive sites appropriately.
We'll be back.

“Back for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Making our second visit to Seahouses in July 11 we had the pleasure of a trip on Serenity II to the Farne Islands. Getting off on the inner farne only to be attacked by the nesting terns was a delight. Thankfully we had been warned to wear hats for protection, But it was well worth it to see the nesting puffins, shags and other species aswell as the seals etc. On September 4th 2012 whilst on another holiday on this beautiful coastline on a lovely calm sunny day we went on Serenity again on an island tour that was brilliant made even better by the fact the boat was turned around so all on board got the chance to see a Razorbill chick sitting quietly on the rocks. It was nice that any question asked is answered so informatively by Andrew and his friendly crew.

“Farne Island Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Last Friday six of us, four adults and two children took the boat trip out of Seahouses round the Farne Islands. The seas were perfectly calm after the previous days high wind and choppy seas. What a wonderful trip, Andrew and his crew mingled with all the passengers giving us an insight to what we would see. I couldn't believe how close we got to the seals. He then went on to tell us the story of Grace Darling and how she rescued the stranded passengers from the Forfarshire disaster. All in all a worthwhile and enjoyable experience. Thoroughly recommended.

“Fabulous trip with SerenityBoat Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Wow! What an amazing trip this was! We went on the tour which allowed an hour on on Inner Farne. Andrew and his assistant were fantastic, so obviously into all wild life and very knowledgeable. We saw several porpoise and Andrew actually turned the boat round for a better look and cut the engine so as not to disturb them! Very memorable and I cant recommend them enough! My Husband reckoned this was the best value for money ever!!

“Like being taken out on a friends boat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Glad I visited trip advisor before our weekend away.it was a best friends 30th celebration and it was one of the highlights. The day turned out gorgeous and we took the 3 hr trip with a stop on the island. Well worth the visit - the island has amazing views back to the mainland and was very peaceful. The boat trip was brilliant. The boat was busy but had plenty of room and the crew came round personally to speak to each group and explain things, we saw loads of birds, seals and even 1 puffin, we searched for the porpoises but did not find them. The scenery and history is captivating and serenity made it a trip to remember.
