Amble Puffin Festival celebrates the Coquet Island puffins! Fun and activities in the Friendliest Port at the best time of year to see our local puffins, as they prepare to take care for their newly hatched pufflings.

The festival will include: guided nature walks, bird watching, local history talks, photo exhibitions, arts and crafts, watersports and live music. There will be events to interest all age groups. Events will be held in a variety of locations throughout the town.

To see the colony of over 20,000 puffins, you can take a boat cruise from Amble Harbour. These family-run boat trips take visitors around historic Coquet Island, about a mile offshore. Weather permitting you will be able to see the Puffins and all the other wildlife who make this RSPB managed nature reserve their home.

Coquet Island is famous for being home to the UK’s sole colony of Roseate Terns as well as providing a safe haven for Sandwich Terns, Arctic Terns, Common Terns, Kittiwakes, Fulmar, Eider Ducks and Grey Seals. Please note, no landing is allowed on the island.
