Swim under the iconic light house at Farne Islands

A boat trip in the late afternoon out to the Farne Islands from Seahouses is an absolute must for any Out door swimming adventurer.

The archipelagos is breath taking, the birds are a wonder and the seals are amusing.

We sail out at 3.00pm, returning @5.00pm after having an amazing opportunity to swim under the Lighthouse. The seals are really inquisitive this time of year and often pop up to say hello.

On returning from an adventure that makes your heart sing there is nothing nicer then sitting over looking the harbour enjoying a meal of locally caught fish and the obligatory chips.

The Farne Islands are a group of islands off the coast of Northumberland, England. The group has between 15 and 20 islands depending on the level of the  tide. They form an archipelago, divided into the Inner Group and the Outer Group. The main islands in the Inner Group are Inner Farne, Knoxes Reef, the East and West Wideopens (all joined on very low tides), and (somewhat separated) the Megstone; the main islands in the Outer Group are Staple Island, Brownsman, North and South Wamses, Big Harcar, and Longstone. The two groups are separated by Staple Sound. The highest point, on Inner Farne, is 62 feet (19 m)  above sea level.

The Farne Islands are an internationally important wildlife habitat. In summer puffins, eider duck, Arctic tern, shag, guillemot, kittiwake, fulmar, razorbill, common tern and Sandwich tern all breed here, while in late autumn a large colony of grey seals pup on the islands. Summer visitors to Inner Farne are strongly advised to wear hats due to Arctic terns dive bombing to protect their chicks
