The Farne Islands are home to thousands of grey seals and each autumn hundreds of pups are born here. Diving or snorkelling in the temperate waters around this island guests will get a chance to get up close and personal with these creatures – the UK’s largest native carnivore.
Say hello to Saltwater Britain, a new and exciting mission-driven ocean adventure series powered by Blue Ventures.
This summer we’re launching an action-packed series of unique marine conservation expeditions taking people on an immersive journey through the treasure trove of life above and below UK waves.
Blending adventure with science, our expeditions offer unforgettable marine experiences and give you the chance to participate in ocean conservation on your doorstep. You will learn skills that will help you become guardians of our seas and 100% of the profits we make will support conservation programmes that are both critical and urgent.

Madagascar, 2019 Expedition
We’re starting with some really exciting plans to work in collaboration with the UKs top marine conservation organisations, incredible coastal locations and specialist wildlife adventure tour operators, all linked together by our own team, values, experience and approach.
We’re committed to supporting coastal communities to thrive, and we’ll be working with the best local providers through all our expeditions, so you can be confident you are supporting them too.
While Saltwater Britain is a new adventure for us, Blue Ventures was founded on a mission to connect people to the ocean, making sure that volunteer programmes have long lasting sustainable benefits for both participants and coastal communities. Tourism has been an important entry point to far reaching conservation success around the tropics, and we’re delighted to be bringing our focus closer to home in 2021.
Over the past 20 years, our tourism work has been recognised numerous times globally. We’re bringing this experience to the UK and we couldn’t be more excited about it!
