Getting to the Farnes

A visitor boat on the way to the Farne Islands

Everyone visiting the Farnes needs to get on a boat at Seahouses harbour. There are 28 islands, of which 3 are accessible; Inner Farne, Staple (May-July only), and Longstone.

Getting around the Farnes

If you are visiting the Islands please have a look at our Site Hazard Identification guides for Inner Farne and Staple so you can be aware of the layout of the islands and any dangers of which you need to be aware.

Sailing to the Farnes

All sailings in April and from August to October go to Inner Farne only and allow for one hour landing on Inner Farne. There are usually sailings every hour between 10.00 and 15.00 but  check with the boat companies before you arrive at the harbour.
