Explore a world that is covered up to 12 metres / 40 feet of ocean twice a day.
Discover the island’s very own wilderness area in the company of trained guides. Revel in the stillness and expanse of an area that is covered twice a day by the third highest tides in the world.
Learn about the fishing history of the area, or just enjoy the chance to be in a wild and remote place.
Walks to Seymour Tower are sometimes described as “moonwalks”. Though the landscape might look barren, it is teeming with marine life and has a rich maritime history. In 2000 the area was declared a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention.
Experience the intertidal zone where marine life must survive the extremes of water pressure and being marooned high and dry for hours out of the ocean.
“Moonwalks” to Seymour Tower take place during the day and at night on very low tides. It is only possible to walk to Icho Tower on very low tides.
Try a late evening bioluminescence walk and observe tiny creatures in the water and the sea weed, which glow in the dark like fireflies or glow worms.
This is a unique experience for anyone who enjoys walking in Jersey.
Note: Due to the huge 12 m/40 ft tides you should not venture this area, unless you have local knowledge.
