The Wildlife

Black Browed Albatross, and the only one ever to be pictured in the Channel Islands

The waters around Jersey and the surrounding islands are enriched by the Gulf Stream currents, this in turn brings nutrients to the island’s waters, creating a rich and varied habitat, supporting a wealth of marine based wildlife.

Common dolphins are regularly sighted in the island’s waters feeding on shoals of mackerel and bass. Bottlenose dolphins are found in the island’s shallower waters, where they are now one of only four resident populations in the British Isles. Apart from simply fishing, a trip with Tarka Sea Trips is an opportunity to see at close hand, some of the diverse wildlife which surrounds the Channel Islands.
