The Ecrehous is a small group of islands and rocks situated 6 miles from Jersey (8 miles from France). Although close to France the islands are part of Jersey. On a typical trip passengers will cruise around the reef spotting the birdlife, seals and if you are lucky, dolphins. On the high tide, the old fishermen’s huts can feel isolated and vulnerable to the sea, whilst on the low tide, the landscape changes to become moonlike and reveals sandbanks and rock pools to explore. The area is perfect for paddle-boarding, swimming and picnics.
