Cruise around the neighboring islands of Herm and Jethou while looking for grey seals and sea birds. After settling in on board the MV Access Challenger, which acclaimed local legend Captain Buz White rebuilt himself, you will head straight for The Humps. This small archipelago and the islands nearby earned their prestigious Ramsar status as nature reserves with exceptionally biodiverse flora and fauna. Chances are, you will observe Atlantic Grey Seals basking on the rocks and swimming offshore. Although puffins are often seen there, Herm Island is more well-known for birds such as fulmars, razorbills, cormorants and guillemots. The crew will help you identify the different species, which nest along the rocky coast at various times of the year. A small colony of puffins usually shows up in the summer. In time, Captain Buz will select a sheltered anchorage for you to enjoy apple juice and Guernsey Gâche, a traditional fruit bread slathered with butter.
