    I am interested in snorkelling off the Farne islands. I’ll be in Northumberland late September – when does your season end? I have snorkelled extensively in tropical areas but never in British waters! I’d be prepared to put up with the cold if I could snorkel with the seals on the Farnes.

    Many thanks
