After 8 hours of gruelling traffic, 11 UBUCers finally made their way to Seahouses, Northumberland with one sole aim – to go find seals! We started off early on Saturday, met Paul our skipper (from Farne Island Divers) at Beadnell Bay and headed off to the islands. We started seeing seals as soon as we reached the first dive site, and we saw plenty during the dives. All the divers had their fins (and sometimes even fingers) nibbled, and I even got a hole in my glove from an overly excited seal. We headed to the bunkhouse in high spirits and after a quick fish and chips headed to the beach or a game of the cardboard box challenge (won by Lily).
On Sunday it was a similar story, we had two dives with the playful seals then went for a quick pub meal before our drive home.
