Farne Islands

Hard Boat Diving, Seahouses, Northumberland

8th & 9th September 2018


The Farnes are a group of Islands situated off the Northumberland Coast famous for their colonies of birds and diver-friendly seals and situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  The waters are rich in sea life and wrecks and the natural shelter of the islands gives good protection for diving on different states of the tide.

At this time of year the young seals are getting more inquisitive so encounters with playful seals are almost guaranteed!

For the non-diver there are many places of interest – Northumbria’s fine castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick are nearby as is the Holy Isle of Lindisfarne.


This weekend trip involves travelling up to Seahouses, on the NE coast, on the Friday (evening) then diving on Saturday and Sunday. Diving will take place from Farne Diver (one or two) which are comfortable hard boats and go out for the 2 dives returning mid afternoon.  In between dives you will get the opportunity to look at the Farne Islands from the boat and spot birds whilst getting a closer look at the seals.

You will enjoy 2 days hard boat diving with 2 dives per day.
