We took a trip on Serenity II to catch a glimpse of the new seal pups being born out on the Farne islands. The crew absolutely made this trip as they were so passionate and knowledgable about the area. They came round each group of people individually to ask what they were interested in seeing. In fact one noticed my... More

Very good trip. We got amazingly close to the seals. Guide on boat was very knowledgeable about the wildlife. Admittedly our experience was enhanced by as good as it gets weather for the end of October. No wind, flat calm and sunshine.

I had planned to take the kids on the Farne Islands seal trip as part of our holiday but had expected to have to leave my wife at the cottage as she relies on a mobility scooter. However after a bit of research and a call to Serenity, I found out they are wheelchair accessible. A great trip overall with... More

We didn't use this boat company and I have to say I felt very unsafe the whole two hours we were on board. This did somewhat make the trip less enjoyable. Please do read reviews before booking a trip. As not all boat trips are the same. But this one looked the best one and I so wish we had... More

We went to see the baby seals today using this tour. The boat was accessible for my mobility scooter and there was a toilet for everyone to use. The tour lasted an hour and a half and the captain updated us with useful and interesting bits of information as the tour progressed. The first mate came to speak with us... More

Lovely relaxed trip around the islands on the half empty Serenity II boat which gave us the opportunity to move about the boat and get the best views. Although at this time of year there are less birds, and no puffins, for which we were prior warned, there was still plenty of seals. The captain's assistant was very friendly, introduced... More

We opted for the trip around the islands without landing as a taster for a more extended visit next year. The friendly crew on the boat made a good effort to ensure everyone on board was felt welcome and included. The commentary was interesting and our questions were answered fully with courtesy. We were able to get quite close to... More

We went on the Grey Seal Tour in September and experienced stunning views as the boat went all around the Farne Islands, apart from seeing lots of seals. Very experienced staff provided informative details throughout. We were extremely glad we chose Serenity for our boat tour as their vessels are purpose-built with a toilet onboard, and part of the boat... More

Me and my partner enjoyed this trip very much. The boat got really close to the island so we were able to clearly see alot of the wildlife including the grey seals and their pups. It rained on the way to the island however this did not spoil the trip. The staff on board the boat constantly dried off seats.... More
