Overview

We visit the bird sanctuaries on Inner Farne and Staple Islands and are THE ONLY boat allowed to land on Longstone Island and The ONLY boat to tour the lighthouse.  There is no landing fee to land on Longstone Island. The views from the top of the lighthouse are incredible.

We also provide Sunset Cruises to the Longstone Island and Lighthouse as well as private charters for birthdays, families and friends or businesses.

Dogs are very welcome to land on the Longstone (not on the other islands) but must be kept on a lead at all times as you can get very close to the seals on occasions. Sadly dogs are not allowed inside the lighthouse.

The lighthouse tour visits Grace Darling's bedroom and allows you to look out of the same window she did when she saw the wreck of the Forfarshire on the rocks.
