Water Sports on Herm


For those looking for water sports on Herm, Outdoor Guernsey offers kayak and paddleboard hire from their location on Shell Beach. No need to pre-book—you can just turn up and rent one for your chosen duration.

However, if you prefer not to do this independently, why not join one of their guided tours? These run throughout the season and we do recommend pre-booking for one of these. Puffin Patrols runs from April to July, and is a 2 hour trip which is very popular. Single and double kayaks are available and the minimum age is 4 years old. This tour is £40 per person and accompanied children under 16 are £15 per person.

It is also possible on certain tides to do the Herm Circumnavigation trip, which is 2.5 hours. This one is a little more demanding, and for this reason the minimum age is 10 years old. It is certainly an unforgettable trip to be able to kayak all the way around and gain a new perspective of the island as a whole.

For both, you will need bathers, towel, shorts and t-shirt. Wetsuits and lifejackets are provided if necessary.
