Coquet Island

St Cuthbert came to Coquet Island more than 1300 years ago; but today there are a few more visitors on this amazing island. Each year in spring and summer Coquet Island becomes home to 35,000 nesting sea birds, some coming from as far away as Africa.

Lying just one mile off the coast of Northumberland, near the fishing port of Amble, Coquet Island is a Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) managed nature reserve. It is designated as a 'site of special scientific interest', and is a safe haven for puffins, terns, and seals. Boat landings are not permitted and only RSPB wardens are allowed to step foot on the island.

Boat trips around the island run from Amble, and are the best way to get close to the wildlife. Journeys between the shore and the Island are quick and the sea is usually calm. The skippers (captains) on the boat trips provide you with live commentary, interesting facts, and are always happy to answer your questions.
