We did it!
After a frustrating few months we finally managed to get a dive trip off the ground.
Always popular, even when restricted in numbers to allow for social distancing on the boats, diving with the grey seals around the beautiful Farne Islands never disappoints.
The seals seemed a little reticent this year but we all got to see them, just not the usual fin & finger nibbling we usually enjoy. Conditions however could not have been better with sunny skies, flat, calm water and plenty of room on the boat. Plenty of life underwater too, with numerous crab, lobster and fish life.
Accommodation was split between different venues, again due to Covid restrictions. We sampled The Hides, which proved to be a perfect diver set up. Dining was something we always look forward to with one of the best Italian dining experiences outside of Italy, Ensieme.
Such a pleasure/relief to get some proper UK diving
