Snorkel Portelet provides an opportunity for all generations to spark an interest and appreciation of our oceans. It highlights four areas of interest which act as self-guided snorkel trails. Information about the location, species, habitats and safety will be available on information boards in the bay as well as online.
Jersey’s shallow marine habitats offer an opportunity to explore the beauty and diversity that lies beneath the waves through the creation of a snorkel trail. Located in the southwest corner of Jersey and nestled between stunning headlands, Portelet Bay boasts an element of isolation from the island, forming its own little oasis. A small islet located in the middle of the bay, Janvrin’s Tomb (or Île au Guerdain), is surrounded by water at high tide. At low tide, the islet becomes accessible via a soft sand bar. In addition to the self-guided aspect of the trail, Blue Marine is working with local groups Bouley Bay Dive Centre and the Société Jersiaise Marine Biology Section to deliver a Snorkel Portelet education package and citizen science.
