The Channel Island puffin breeding colonies are the most southerly in Europe and Herms iconic annual visitors are easily visited by joining our kayak puffin watching trips.
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.
