Walks on the Seabed in Jersey

Seymour Tower

Jersey is an island shaped by the sea, where things are revealed – to any who choose to look.

Join us on an Intertidal walk on the seabed in Jersey. Enter a world where the ocean disappears to the horizon, and we are all visitors.

Explore rock pools, cross sand bars and gullies with experienced local guides.

Revel in a place that’s covered twice a day by some of the highest tides in the world. Here, marine life must survive the extremes of the daily rhythms of the ocean, and the distinction between land and sea is blurred.

Discover Jersey’s very own wilderness with local guides. Derek, Trudie and Sheila have been leading people amongst the rocks, channels and rockpools for over 17 years. All are Jersey Tour Guide Association/Visit Jersey accredited guides with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Sea Foraging & Oyster Trail

In the past, Jersey folk called it low water fishing. Today it’s called foraging. Whatever the name, join us on a marine wild food foray as we stroll down to the most extensive oyster beds in the British Isles.

We’ll reveal what you can forage from the sea and share stories of the 19th century Oyster fishing gold rush.

Finish this 2½ hour walk with the opportunity to sample six fresh Jersey oysters with a glass of bubbly in Seymour Inn. £37.50. Dates
