Always fancied yourself a sailor? Whether you’re an experienced skipper or a complete novice, there’s plenty of opportunity to get out on the water in Guernsey. Guests staying with us at The Old Government House Hotel and Spa or The Duke of Richmond Hotel will be perfectly located in picturesque St. Peter Port, mere minutes from a wealth of boats waiting to take you on a trip around the island. Take a look at our list of the best Guernsey boat trips to enjoy during your stay.

For wildlife and adrenaline

Nothing beats a RIB voyage if you want to feel the wind in your hair and see the local wildlife. Suitable for the whole family, the RIB trips depart from Guernsey’s Albert Pier, so pop down, grab a life jacket and get ready for some fun. There are plenty of adventures to choose from, but the “Fast Blast” in particular gets our vote.

For a luxurious day on the water

Spend a day aboard the “Redoubtable”, a sleek and stylish sports cruiser from Channel Island Boat Charters, and you may never want to make land again. An incredible way to woo business associates (they have a great system aboard, including a conference space) or celebrate a momentous occasion, this luxury vessel will convert you to sea life in no time at all.

For learning to sail

For fun, themed boat trips
