Farne Islands 2022

30 September, 2022 - 3 October, 2022

The Farnes is renowned as the best place in the UK to dive with seals – approximately 4,500 Atlantic Grey Seals live here, around the small islands and rocky outcrops, just a short distance off the Northumberland coast. In addition, the area is a popular location for wreck diving, The best time to dive with seals is late September through to mid-October. A trip to the Farnes is a must for anyone who enjoys marine life and underwater photography. We’ve managed to secure one of the best diving charters in the area at prime time! We have 10 spaces available for this epic adventure! We’ll travel up on Friday, to arrive at our base in Seahouses late afternoon. There’s several highly recommended restaurants locally, where we can enjoy evening meals, along with local pubs, so there’s options for everyone. Breakfast will be served at our B&B (The Olde School House), before setting off diving. After our two days of diving the Farnes, we’ll have an opportunity to wash down kit, top up air fills and enjoy a final group meal, before setting off home at our leisure the following day.
