A great cruise around Alderney's Puffin and Gannet colonies with lots more unexpected species spotted as well. It was also a nice way to see Alderney's coastline and hear a bit about the history of the island. The guide (Justin) was obviously very experienced and...More

Of course it is entirely not AWT’s fault they’d all left the previous week! We had a lovely well organised trip out to Burhou and Les Etacs and saw thousands of gannets. Skipper Bugsy extended the trip as the puffins had gone and we went...More

This trip organised through Alderney Wildlife Trust is an excellent way to enjoy wildlife ( we saw puffins, gannets, seals, and loads of birds) and the fortifications from the sea. Never fails to impress!

The main reason to go on the trip was to see the puffins on Burhou. The guide was so knowledgeable that it was made so much more interesting. We saw gannets, shags and many gulls. Apparently 2-3% of the world’s gannets are around Alderney. A...More

We had a great trip on the sea. The waters can be slightly rough but exhilarating. We saw puffins, gannets and shags, and lots of different kinds of seagulls. The guide gave us a good description of each bird and also some of the landmarks...More
