Freediving with Grey Seals in the North Sea
A fascinating trip to dive with specimens of Grey Seal, in the Farne Islands, an archipelago located off the UK-Scotland border comprising between fifteen and twenty islands depending on the tidal cycle.
The grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) is a large species of the Focidae family found on both sides of the North Atlantic that has not been endangered since 1970 when it was declared protected in the UK under the Seal Conservation Act.
Diving with seals, playful and extraordinary freedivers, is a true hymn to the beauty of the sea and its extraordinary creatures. Not to be missed!
In the land where Harry Potter was filmed
An unmissable adventure for Katabasis Freediving and Sailing freedivers amidst the legends of enchanted castles (Hogwarts) and the Farne Islands, populated by grey seals and surrounded by unusual landscapes.
The Farne Islands in Scotland are one of the wildest countries in Europe, close to the mysterious city of Edinburgh. Made up of around 30 islands, they are a landmark for diving in the United Kingdom because, between June and September, a colony of around five thousand grey seals lives there. They are very tame mammals and their very curious pups lend themselves to playing with freedivers.
