Yet again another fabulous day out with you, Martin. The highlight of the day being the 5 Black Grouse, stunning! We were with a great group of people and had plenty laughs. Hope to meet up again with Nicola and Laura. Thanks again for being such a great guide. Jill & Steve, Chester-le-Street (Kielder 03/03/2013)
The trip was fantastic; we couldn't have asked for better!! The boat was great and the wildlife was perfect. Maybe a bit of commentary would have been good, but that's all!! Sunny Smith, Northumberland (Whale and Dolphin Cruise 08/09/2012)
We really enjoyed the opportunity to see Minke Whales off 'our coast'. We'll be booking again. Thank you Paul and Judith, Northumberland (Whale and Dolphin Cruise 08/09/2012)
This was our first time on a trip such as this and so we really didn't know what we would get to see. Much to our extreme delight we were honoured to be in the company of 50+ White Beaked dolphins who were very inquisitive and came right up to the boat swimming along side us. The experience was breathtaking and the memory will be a cherish one. On the way back we had a further treat with a sighting of two Minke whales which was a truly magical ending to our day as the sun set in front of us. The team were great, sharing their knowledge of sea birds with us along the way. Martin and Alan have a wealth of experience and so much respect for these beautiful creatures. Their passion for wildlife made our experience so much more special. I would recommend this tour to anyone including novice like us. What a fantastic introduction into the world of whale and dolphin watching. Thank you. Hannah and Danny Baker , Nottingham (Farne Deeps Pelagic 25/07/2012)
Great day, Martin. Steve was especially impressed with your ID skills. Hope to eventually do every tour. Thanks again. Jill & Steve, Chester le Street (Lindisfarne 01/02/2012)
We had two great days out with Martin, firstly on and around Holy Island where we saw an impressive variety of wading birds and geese, together with large numbers of grey seals; and secondly at several reserves around Druridge Bay. We were able to identify many species we had not seen before, and we benefited enormously from Martin's expert knowledge of bird species, their calls, habitat and patterns of flight, etc. We learned a great deal that will help us to get more out of any birdwatching visits we subsequently make on our own. We look forward to going out with Martin and Northern Experience Wildlife Tours again next year - I strongly recommend them. Mike and Maggie Boyes, Gloucestershire (Lindisfarne 11/10/2011, Druridge Bay 13/10/2011)
We had a fantastic afternoon with Martin. It was great to be with someone who has such intimate knowledge of the wildlife and also the local area. We will always remember watching the seals gradually revealed by the tide at Lindisfarne in the glorious sunshine.
We hope to book another tour soon. Many thanks. Lyndsey McConville and Petter Skramstad, London (Lindisfarne mini safari 26/08/2011)
Really enjoyed the safari. Martin is extremely knowledgeable about many aspects of wildlife and nature. As beginners we learned a lot about identifying various seabirds. Our packed tea was excellent and tasty. To top it all we sighted a beautiful otter for about half an our at the end of our day. We discovered a whole new past time of sitting in hides waiting to see wonderful animals. Chris and Jayne Bolger, Oxfordshire (Otter Safari 03/07/2011)
We all had a fantastic day(the weather helped as well), Martin's knowledge of the local birdlife was very impressive. I particularly liked the Curlew flocks and the passing Gannets spotted off Stag Rocks. We went on to have a fantastic experience on Inner Farne (you were right about wearing a hat), the highlight of which were the huge flocks of Terns, some of which were still incubating while most were frenetically feeding the masses of chicks.
I think that the tour for us really hit the spot, the vehical is comfortable, the free use of the binoculars and your friendly disposition coupled with your knowledge of wildlife is really impressive. I think that we could have prepared ourselves a bit better by bringing along something to drink, perhaps for future tours you may consider providing cold drinks from a coolbox and/or hot drinks from a thermos (for the colder days).
All in all a fantastic day and I would hope that we try a different experience perhaps next year.

We enjoyed our evening with you.It was a lovely experience, to go to different sites and to sit there so late at night and watch the wildlife. We enjoyed it so much, we have since been back to the area and were lucky to see a family of stoats only a few feet away from us. Many thanks. Margaret and Tom.
