Walks on the Seabed in Jersey
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 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 led people amongst the rocks, channels and rockpools for over 18 years. All are Jersey Tour Guide Association/Visit Jersey accredited guides with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Seymour & Icho Tower Walks
Our intertidal walks to Seymour or Icho Tower are also called “moonwalks”. Though the landscape might look barren, it’s teeming with marine life and has a rich maritime history.
Our walks occur in an internationally recognised Ramsar Wetlands site – a marine version of the Jersey National Park.
Bioluminescence on the beach walks
As the ocean recedes on a moonless night, join us in search of tiny creatures which glow and twinkle in the dark like fireflies or glow worms.
We have enabled our guests to discover these rarely-seen marine creatures for over ten years.
£21 (under 16 years £12). Dates
Wild Vegetables of the Ocean. Seaweed Foraging
Bring the sea to your kitchen. Jersey has more than 200 species of seaweed, some tastier than others, all healthy and great to bake or use as condiments in your cooking.
£21 (under 16 years £12). Dates
Our expert guides will reveal stories of this seascape from when you could have walked to France, the landings by French invaders at La Rocque to the attempts by Jersey people in 1944 to escape German occupation by small boats, and more. Observe amazing marine life and see oyster farmers going about their work of harvesting delicious Jersey Oysters.
Private walks. £84 for up to three people. Add £21 per adult or £12 per child for four or more participants. Contact us to arrange a date.
This walk suits participants who prefer a shorter walk to explore the upper shore or want to discover Europe’s largest rocky intertidal area when the tide is not low enough to explore further offshore.
Walk among the oyster and mussel beds in the Royal Bay of Grouville, followed by the opportunity to sample delicious fresh Jersey Oysters. £20 (under 16 years £10). Dates.
Stay in Seymour Tower
We can arrange a day and overnight stay in the historic Seymour Tower. The ocean surrounds the tower at high tide, so don’t forget anything!
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 beer or wine in Seymour Pub. £39.50 per person. Dates
Online booking is essential because our seabed walks are in small groups, and some walks can book months in advance. A small group gives you a better experience of exploring this fantastic intertidal world as the ocean recedes to the horizon. Dates.
French and German commentary is possible if reserved in advance.
