Why not charter the Upholder with your family and friends and see the wild life That the Northumbrian coastline can offer. Trips can be tailored to suit your own needs with the advantage of pre booking to avoid the queues. Trips can be as short as one hour around Coquet island to see the Grey Seals, and nesting birds such as terns,puffins,and eider ducks. Coquet island is the most southerly nesting site of the eider ducks. For those who would like to go further a field and see puffins and gannets feeding in open water a coastal trip is the answer, To have the chance of seeing other marine mammals like dolphins porpoises and minky whales an offshore trip is your only chance.

Take in the Northumbrian coast line and see villages like Alnmouth, Boulmer, Howick and Craster, and Dunstanburgh Castle. Depending on the time of the year the spectacular scene of diving Gannets feeding on mackerel and sand eels can be almost certainly guaranteed. For the last eight years common black and white Dolphins have been seen regularly in late July and early august along with the occasional minky whale. When the Dolphins are in they Just can not help themselves from playing with the boat and will go out of there way to ride on the bow wave of the boat. On one occasion there were two 35 foot minky whales one on each side of the boat enjoying the wash off the boat.
