DIVE TRIP DESCRIPTION

Farnes: Seal Diving

Diving in and around the Farne Islands is a real feast for the senses. Numerous wrecks litter the seabed, and inquisitive grey seals come and say hello. The Farne Islands consist of almost 30 small islands and rock outcrops lying between 2 and 4 miles off the Northumberland coast.

The Seals

When diving the Farnes you will become acquainted with the local colony of 4-5 thousand grey seals! The younger seals are even more inquisitive than the divers and often come in to take a closer look, even nibbling on fins. Other highlights includes a vast array of anemone, dead men’s fingers and many different crustaceans. There are also several relatively unusual local species – you may come across lumpsucker, Norwegian topknot, yarrel’s blenny, the spectacular wolf fish, and the huge, deep-water anemone, bolocera.

The Trip

The specific dives site selection is at the absolute discretion of the skipper.
