Puffin Patrol (April-July)

The trips start from our base at Shell beach and travel South past Belvoir bay down to Puffin Bay (where else!)

The small groups are led by an expert kayak instructor and puffin watcher who knows the movements and routines of the puffins intimately as well as the waters around Herm and outlying islets.


Herm Humps seal Patrol (July-October)

kayak up to the incredible Humps archipelago teeming with wildlife including our local seal colony who often come and say hello! 


Herm circumnavigation (Most other times)

A unique 2 hour circular trip around fascinating Herm Island with views out to all the other main channel islands, a chance to spot seals, dolphins, peregrines and much more. We also take the opportunity to stop and explore the Herm silver mine!

The puffins have left Herm now for another year and we are looking forward to their  return next March.
