These are run with The Sailing Trust on their rigid inflatable boat (RIB) ‘SeaJay’, skippered and led by Tara. Booking via their website (WildGuernsey vouchers can’t be used for their courses, sorry). £198 for a boat of 3 people max.

This course does what it says!  Why walk down the beach to collect and learn about seaweed, and how you can add it to your larder, when you can lean over the side of a boat and pick the freshest fronds!  The course will cover preparation and uses of sea vegetables, whilst taking in the environment and learning about the habitats, heritage and medicinal benefits. Tasters will be supplied giving you ideas of recipes and how  to cook seaweed.

The sea range is within 3 miles of St Peter Port, which extends out to Herm and around Jethou, up to the north by Beaucette marina, the east coast of Guernsey and south reaching round the corner to the stunning Peastacks cliff of St. Martins point.

All trips are subject to weather conditions.
