Find out what Jersey has to offer visiting mariners

Jersey and the Channel Islands experience some of the largest tidal ranges in the world (up to 12 metres), providing mariners with some of the most exhilarating sailing imaginable.

Combined with Jersey’s climate (the island is officially recognised as the sunniest place in Britain), this provides visitors with fantastic opportunities to explore what the Island has to offer both on sea and ashore.
