The Northumberland Coast is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – and for good reason. From its dramatic subtidal rocky reefs to mysterious sea caves and sweeping beaches, this area is packed full of spectacular marine life. And located a short distance from shore is one of the largest seal rookeries in Britain.
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.
Hosted by Charlie Young and the Fifth Point team, over the course of the weekend you’ll be taught about grey seals, their behaviour, habitat and ecology, along with some guidelines for responsible interaction.
Both days you’ll hit the water with our guides in small groups and complete two shores dives and two boat dives on the Farnes with the seals.
