Went on a trip to the Farne Islands on 20th June and so glad I made the effort to go. Apart from dodging camera lenses the length of my arm, it was a well spent 3 hours of my holiday. It has to be seen to be believed the sheer volume of birds on these islands. We landed on Inner... 更多
In mid- June we were able to take the trip to Farne islands during the breeding season. Make sure you take the trip that stops on the island and pray for good weather. The crew did a nice job of explaining the light house history and pointing out the seals, but the birds stole the show.. There were many different... 更多
We did a trip out to the Farne Islands. It well and truly lived up to expectations. You see seals , puffins, and other seabirds. The boat went in close to the bad king seals and the commentary was informative. A wonderful experience! If you like wildlife there is nothing to dislike
Great boat trip. Stayed 1 hour on staple island. Lots of sea birds to see up close. On the way we saw seals and lots of birds flying and diving for fish. Beware of the rocks on staple island wear good footwear. Also the smell is not good when you first arrive. Enjoy.
Loved the whole thing. But beware of the smell on the island it is also very rocky sowear good foot wear.
A very enjoyable boat ride around the Farne Islands with a landing on Staple Island to see the Puffins. An amazing experience. It was the perfect season for it and it was a calm crossing. Very lucky. Excellent trip for birdwatchers. The operator gave a good tour and gives enough time to get the photos and experience yo want.
We went on the all day trip to a Staple Island and then Inner Farne. Staple Island cannot always be visited depending upon sea swell which makes landing difficult. We were blessed with a fine day. We saw Shags, Guillemots, Razorbill, Kittiwakes, Puffins. On inner Farne wear a hat as the Terns attack you by pecking your head to protect... 更多
Took the 3 hour trip round the islands stopping off and landing at inner farne. Great skippering, so close but safe, to the rocks giving amazing views of the birds and seals. Fantastic trip, going again tomorrow.
We are a group of 5 ladies, who went on the RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat), from Seahouses to the Farne Islands and then onto Holy Island for a 2 hour visit culminating in an exhilarating return journey to Seahouses. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our skipper had the balance between informative and humorous. We saw a large range of marine... 更多
Another cracking day out, for the first time we decided to do just a single Island trip, we usually do the whole day 2 Island excursion. It was as usual Fantastic, the crew friendly and informative and the boat not over crowded though I thought that the amount of visitors on Staple Island was by far the most we had... 更多
We really enjoyed the trip. The lady on the phone was very helpful over which day to come, in view of the changing weather conditions. The commentary on the boat was very informative and the skipper took time near the islands to allow people to photograph the seals and the birds. Inner Farne itself was very lively, with lots of... 更多
very professional and informative of the islands history and birds. informing of us of the best times and island to visit. this may have been our first visit but defiantly not the last highly recommend this company. it is best to pre- book the day before. The boat trip cost £15 at the time of our visit with additional cost... 更多
We went on a 2.5 hours cruise of the Farne Islands that included landing on Inner Farne for about an hour. We had such an amazing time seeing all the birds and the seals - certainly something we will not forget. Landing on Inner Farne was interesting as we could see the birds very close by but if you are... 更多
We went on the half day trip including landing on Staple Island. Unfortunately the sea swell prevented the landing but nevertheless it was a great trip. The crew were knowledgeable about the species and pointed out many thins that would otherwise have been missed. Make sure you wrap up in warm clothing!
I can't be anymore complementary about Billy Shiel's boat tours. We were kept informed about the weather situation and also what would happen if we couldn't land on staple island. The two ladies in the ticket office were fabulous as were the gentlemen on the boat. A fabulous trip carried out in a safe controlled manner. Would definitely recommend this... 更多
