We had an amazing 3.5 hours. Everyone from the ticket offic ladies to the crew on the boat were excellent. We went out to view the puffins and guillemots and were given excellent information and masses of time to just stand and watch the birds. We were taken to see some basking seals and gthen dropped off on one of the islands for an hour to walk round and spend time with the birds. We were picked up on time and taken back to Sea Houses. The boats dog was on patrol and very friendly. We felt it was an excellent trip and well worth the money,

Amazing how close in the boat can go, you can almost touch the birds! Very knowledgeable guide and captain who changed route so that we could travel with the dolphins who had just arrived around The Farnes. We spent 10-15 minutes with them before landing on Inner Farne. The trip is good value and there is plenty to see, including the seals. Highly recommended.

We took the Serentity boat trip out to the Farne Islands on a wet, windy day. It was great fun, the boat handled the rough seas with ease. The crew were knowledgeable and friendly throughout the 2 hour trip, telling us all about the birds and seals we saw. The boat went right up to the cliff so we had fantastic views of the nesting seabirds and the basking seals! Despite the weather it was a great trip and I look forward to going on the Serenity again sometime!

...with people who really care about their customers!

We went out on the boat not catamaran for the 'sail around' the Farne Islands. Felt that the trip was well worthwhile although I would have loved to see seal pups but May is the wrong time of year.

On the way back a bigger boat passed us absolutely packed with people, I'm pleased we chose Serentity for a more personal service. Thank you.

Friends took the 3.15 catamaran trip around the islands and thoroughly enjoyed. Only 4 of them on boat. Very informative guide and good close ups of birds and seals. Make sure you wrap up well even on a sunny day.
