Shallow seas

​​There is a fascinating world in the shallow seas surrounding Jersey that is never exposed at low tide and can only be visited by divers or snorkellers.

Because the Island is almost the most southerly part of the British Isles, summer sea temperatures are usually higher than elsewhere around Britain. Consequently a number of species that are rare in Britain can be found in the clean and constantly flowing waters around Jersey.

We are also lucky to regularly sight large groups of bottlenose dolphins from the east coast of the Island. It is thought that the local population of these wonderful sea mammals is one of the largest in the British Isles.
