Despite wet weather & choppy sea we had a great trip. Skipper did great job of keeping boat as level as possible in conditions and got really close to wildlife without disturbing them. Loads of puffins & seals and on journey back to harbour a pod of dolphins!!! What an amazing end to a great day out :-)

My partner and I went to Northumberland and went on a last minute trip to the farne islands. Had an amazing trip with serenity, saw puffins, seals... and a nice surprise pod of dolphins! They swam so close to the boat, got some lovely pictures. I would definitely recommend this tour, the staff are really friendly and accommodating. The captain... More

In Northumberland with the kids for a few days, played in each behind Bamburgh castle as always but went out to the Farne Islands with Serenity and what a great trip. The weather was lovely for this time of year and plenty of birds on the islands but the boat trip and the chaps skippering Serenity III were excellent and... More

Excellent commentary from Captain and we got up so close to kittiwakes and puffins and guillemots. Super 1.5 hour trip around the islands, highly recommend.

Myself, wife mother and sister and her husband had a very wet and cold trip on a rainy Saturday mid March with Serenity and we had an awesome time! I cannot praise the owner/captain and his boat trip enough. We were all dreading the trip because of the weather (it was very wet and didn't hardly let up) and I... More

I would really recommend this boat tour. We went on the Inner Farne boat tour as we wanted to get off on the island. We had a good tour around the smaller islands and saw many SEALS, PUFFINS and SHAGS. We paid £30 to Serenity and then bought our ticket for the national trust to get on the island at... More

We had an amazing trip with Serenity. The staff were really friendly and so knowledgeable! not only did we get to see the puffins on inner Farne but we were lucky enough to see dolphins and hundreds of seals on the other islands. The boat was immaculately kept and we had a very smooth crossing. All in all we had... More

Whole experience was great from start to finish. Booked the boat trip from the sales desk near the car park in the town rather than the harbour. Lady who sold tickets was helpful and friendly. The boat trip lasted 90 mins with informative commentary. Wrap up warm with as many layers as possible as it does get cold out at... More

Lady who sold us our tickets was very friendly and took her time to chat to my boys (11 & 8 ) about what they might see. She assured me about the boat as I'm a nervous sea passenger! The same lady walks the groups down to the boat and waits until everyone is on- she was lovely. The trip... More
