Packages available May - September 2021
Jersey Seafaris provide regular boat trips, tours and charters around Jersey’s beautiful coastline and offshore islands, giving you the chance to experience one of the biggest tidal ranges in the world and discover hidden wonders around every corner. Visits to the offshore reefs of Les Ecrehous and the Minquiers are an absolute must.
The Ecrehous is the most popular trip and only a 10 minute boat ride away. The Ecrehous is a small group of islands and rocks situated 6 miles from Jersey. Although close to France (8 miles away) the islands are part of Jersey. On a typical trip passengers will cruise around the reef spotting the birdlife, seals and if you are lucky, dolphins. On the high tide, the old fishermen's huts feel isolated and vulnerable to the sea, whilst on the low tide, the landscape changes to become moonlike and reveals sandbanks and rock pools to explore. The area is perfect for paddle-boarding, swimming and picnics.
The Minquiers are a group of islands and rocks situated 9 miles south of Jersey. The largest island, Maîtresse Île, includes Britain’s most southerly buildings - a cluster of small cottages used in the summer months. A typical trip would be split in half between the main island and an outer sandbank. The sandbank is ideal for paddleboarding, swimming and picnics. Expect to see a variety of birdlife, especially in the breeding season and if you’re lucky, you may spot a resident seal or pod of dolphins on your crossing.
