Farne Islands, Northumberland North Sea Water #126560

Farne Islands with Seals, Northumberland, in the North Sea #126560

A day out with the freediving group Apneists UK swimming with seals. I don't think we will ever have as good as dive as this with Seals around the UK ever again! We played with the seals for a good 2 hours and did a bit of shallow depth to check out the kelp under the boat at about 8m deep.

The Farne Islands are a beautiful place, but watch out for the tides. They can be quite powerful and surge around the islands with great power.

Rachels suunto dive watch recorded about 15.5c which was bliss to be in and we could of quite happily stayed in for another few hours.

We had other encounters in 2014 with seals in South Wales and Wester Highlands of Scotland but this trip was by far the best for interaction with seals and a great bunch of people.
