Below Us The Stars At Your Feet

Derek Hairon is your guide on our evening bioluminescence walks

Our evening guided walks on the seabed (Moonwalks) in Jersey feature in the latest edition of Absolute Jersey.

This short article captures the fantastic experience of discovering tiny glowing worms (Caulleriella bioculata and sometimes Anaitides maculata) which inhabit a few special spots around the coast of Jersey.

As we walk between the rocks which appear as the tide recedes we encounter these small worms. This really is like walking with the stars at your feet. Above us the stars and constellations can also be seen. On a still night both the glow of the worms and reflections of the stars create a magical experience.

Dates are listed on our Walking in Jersey Diary of walks. They take place all year round when the tides are low enough. Private walks on other dates can sometimes be arranged.

In 2017 we featured in The Guardian travel pages with a feature and some stunning photos of our bioluminescence walks.

Bioluminescence walk dates are listed via the Book Now button.
