The Farne Islands are a group of islands off the coast of Northumberland, England. There are between 15 and 20 islands depending on the state of the tide.

As well as being popular with bird watchers, the Farne Islands are a popular scuba diving location, with a variety of sites suitable for all levels of divers.


The islands appeal to divers for the seals and wrecks. Mainly because the grey seal colony at the Farnes numbers about 5,000!

They are famous for being curious and will often play with divers in the water, and show off there impressive underwater acrobatics.
The seals are also known for being very mischievous, such as hitching rides or divers legs and fins, and even trying to pull the hoods off the divers heads!
