The experience is wonderful and we were able to go all around the Farne Islands with a partial running commentary on the history of the Farnes and all about Grace Darling and here family. WE were also chatted to by one of the crew about the various birds and seals that we were able to stop and see - good... More

We had come to the Farne Islands specifically to see puffins and we were not disappointed. Serenity boat tours made this trip very special, from ease of booking in advance to their friendliness and comfort of getting round the islands by boat. Saw lots of interesting wild life from puffins to seals and including all sorts of historical points about... More

Took a short (2/3 hour) trip to see the seabirds and puffins on the Farne islands. Boats crew were careful, competent and knowledgable and told us about the various species we saw. Trip out to inner Farne included closeup of several breeding colonies including gannets, shags, kittiwake etc etc, grey seals. An hour on the island wasn't long enough! Be... More

We booked a trip to the Farne Islands with Serenity Boat Tours and would highly recommend the company. The commentary was very informative and the Captain tried to get us as near as possible to the cliffs to view the birds nesting on the islands and to the seals basking. We also had an hour to wander around Inner Farne... More

Round the island tour lasting 1.5hours was brilliant. Able to see lots of birds- puffins the main attraction. Also seal- the skipper got really close to all the wildlife so you could get good photos and see clearly. They informed you about all the birds and seals-what you could see at different times of the year. The history of the... More

We booked to go on Farne Island tout. Initially thought it was a bit expensive but wow! What a trip! The crew were very knowledgeable about the birds and sealife and were very approachable with questions. The array of birds seen was awesome. Thank you for an amazing experience.

We chose Serenity mainly due to great TA reviews (and the company responds to them, which means they care) and they have a good informative website. Rang to book earlier this week and the lady on the phone was very friendly and helpful - good start! Went to pick our tickets up and pay on the day - again friendly... More
