Farne Islands diving is some of the best Scuba Diving in the UK there is. If you love to see wildlife, and in particular seals, then you’re in for a treat. The best time to to dive in the Farne Islands is late September to early October, when the adolescent seals are around and the water temperature is between 14-15C (57-59F). At this time they are very inquisitive and will engage with scuba divers. The best tip for them to come close, is to set your buoyancy and float on your back. Doing this makes you appear less threatening and they will come right up to you and even bite at your fins.
