How could we resist organising a trip to go play with the seals again at the Farne Islands on 7th – 9th October.
The trip will be suitable for recreational divers of all levels and is the highlight of our annual dive calendar.
What is Diving the Farnes Like?
The Farnes is one of the most exhilarating dive locations in the UK. Diving at the Farne Islands offers one of the finest underwater experiences in the UK. Mostly consisting of 30 Islands and rocky outcrops the Farne Islands is also home to one of the largest colonies of grey seals. When diving it is very common to experience a friendly encounter with one of the most treasured local attractions.
Diving will be by boat on ‘Glad Tidings’. This is a hard boat with a lift! We will do a double boat dive Saturday afternoon, and then a double boat dive Sunday. We expect to see seals and wrecks
Each diver will need 2 cylinders. Cylinders need to be taken to the Farnes and can be rented from the Aquanaut shop.
All other kit can also be rented from the Aquanaut shop – please contact the shop for prices.
Accommodation is in the village of Seahouses within walking distance of the town centre and most importantly from the pub!!
It is Hostel style but very nice and can accommodate up to 20 persons, a real bed, kitchen…
We will travel up on the Friday morning, arriving early evening. On Saturday we have 2 afternoon boat dives scheduled, followed by 2 on Sunday morning. We will then hit the road to be back in Kingston late Sunday evening.
The full trip cost £270 per person including transport by minibus, fuel, 2 nights accommodation (Friday & Saturday), 4 boat dives, and there is an added bonus of an experienced PADI instructor (Matt) to make sure all goes smoothly!!
If you would like to book the trip or have questions, please contact Matt at the shop as spaces are limited.
