Visited December 2021. High tide and a bit choppy so elements were against us but still had a great time. Wrong time of year for bird spotting or dolphins but plenty of seals!

Went on 4th December at 10:30 am . Very friendly crew, very knowledgeable and keen to answer your questions. . Very skilful piloting of the boat, takes you close to the seals on the rocks. Great to see the deal pups. see something different every time you sail. The crew are looking out for interesting wildlife , so they can share it with you. Puts the passengers foremost. Brilliant value can't wait to go again.

Go! This was a fabulous trip out to the Farne Islands, with good commentary by the driver and his mate. We saw Lots of seals- and they came to see us too. No puffins as it was November, and the wind was very chilly, but such a lovely experience. Do go.

Took a boat trip today with Billy Shield’s Boat Trips - their grey seal trip - out to the Farne Islands. Fantastic! A great sail, excellent commentary and first class information from Dan. Highly recommend ! Saw lots of seals including many new pups.

The Fast Blast trip was so much fun! We were really lucky to see a pod of Dolphins which was the highlight of the trip- plus the boat was able to get up really close to the islands and the colonies of seals. Our skipper was incredibly knowledgeable and obviously knew the Farne islands inside and out - we always felt perfectly safe even when going at really high speeds. Would totally recommend.
