From Seahouses it is a easy visit to the Farne Islands. Everyone visiting the Farnes needs to get on a boat at Seahouses harbour. There are 28 islands, of which 3 are accessible; Inner Farne, Staple (May-July only), and Longstone.
You cannot only sail around the islands, but you can also go ashore and actually walk between the birds on the islands. A great experience and paradise for photographers. There are lots of B&B's to stay the night and visit the islands early in the morning. Best time to visit is May-June. Great views of breeding Atlantic Puffin, Razorbill, Common Guillemot, European Shag, Arctic Tern and Common Eider.
Go to Seahouses and park your car (see the P on the map) and book at one of the 4-5 boats in the harbour (also marked on the map). As a general rule, if you are visiting between May – July then there are sailings on the hour between 9.00 and 12.00 to Staple, while those between 13.00 and 15.00 are to Inner Farne. An all day ticket costs about 35 Pound, All day-trip boats sailing May - July visit both islands but have limited capacity. Only Inner Farne ticket costs 12 Pound. Inner Farne is open all season (April-October) and Staple Island opens for the main breeding season from May-July. Both islands are subject to variable opening times dependant on the time of year, weather and other factors. Check for info on www.nationaltrust.org.uk/farne-islands
