Yacht & Boat Charter
Chartering a boat for a fishing trip or just a sunset champagne cruise around the south coast bays isn’t as expensive as you may think especially if you are with a group of friends. We highly recommend a picnic on Les Écréhous, an off shore reef between Jersey and France. Fishing JerseyTrips offer some of the best sea fishing to be had in the British Isles if not Europe from their fast 33 foot boat Anna 2 Trips can include wreck fishing, full days including lunch and evening trips.

Jersey is blessed in having one of Europe’s best surfing beaches, the five mile St Ouens Bay. This beach has numerous surf shops and surf schools and the always great beach café Big Verns. If you swim here make sure you are in-between the flags of the lifeguard stations as the waves and currents can be big. If you have never surfed, have a lesson you’ll love it. If you’re already a great surfer, get ready for a good day.
