We are organising a trip to go play with the Seals at the Farne Islands on 1st / 2nd October. At £180 it is also fantastic value for such a special trip.
The trip will be suitable for recreational divers of all levels.
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.
To keep costs low, and time off work at a minimum, we will depart early morning Saturday the 1st of October around 4-5am from the shop. We aim to return to Kingston late Sunday evening. Transport will be by minibus. The journey is approximately 350 miles (7 hours drive) and a couple of people have said they are happy to share the driving.
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. Air fills are included in the price. Cylinders need to be taken to the Farnes and can be rented from the Aquanaut shop.
