We are a genuine wholly-owned small family-run business that has been established for a very long time.
Our boat, the Golden Gate, was purpose-built in Seahouses for the Farne Islands and in particular, Trinity House duties to the Lighthouses.
George, the skipper and lighthouse attendant, has sailed around these islands for a very long time. You will receive unsurpassable commentary and quirky knowledge from him.
Seasonal seabirds such as puffins, guillemots, terns etc can only be guaranteed to be seen may-July.
Since Covid-19 broke, we don't aim to pack our boat fully to increase customer experience.
We aim for ultimate customer satisfaction and strive to meet all customer's expectations before and after the trip.
