We have a number of exclusive Farne Island charters on the Golden Gate for this spring and summer.

Sailing from Seahouses, we will cruise around the islands and land on Longstone to visit the lighthouse. Plenty of photo opportunities on all of the trips. Dogs welcome, but must be well behaved and kept on a lead on Longstone.

The cost per person will be £10 per adult for website members, £15 per adult for non members. Under 16’s half price. Dogs free!

We will also run some all day trips to all of the islands, with an extended stay at Inner Farne or Staple island to get those puffin and tern photos. This trip will last around 6 hours or thereabouts, depending on weather and sea conditions. Bring a packed lunch and a flask and plenty of memory cards! No dogs on this trip, I’m afraid. We will also do some evening cruises for porpoise and dolphin viewing. Full details will be published in due course.

On the full day excursions, I will have photographic equipment available and be on hand to give advice and assistance on how to get the best shots and use your camera to it’s fullest potential, be it a phone, bridge or DSLR.

In addition to this, we will run a couple of workshop type trips on some evening cruises with only a small number on board. Again, full details will follow once we have the dates sorted.

We need a minimum of 30 people per trip to make it worthwhile, so please only book if you fully intend coming. Anyone who doesn’t turn up without notifying in advance won’t be eligible to come on any others I’m afraid. It’s been a problem for us in the past.

Please bear in mind that all these trips are weather dependent, which is why we aren’t asking for payment up front. In the event of adverse weather, safety is of the highest priority. We will inform everyone on the morning of the trip, or possible the evening before if we are going to have to cancel.
