How to Get Here

If you are travelling from further afield you need to get to Guernsey first, which you can do by air or by sea.

TRAVEL BY PRIVATE BOAT TO HERM

To visiting yachtsmen, the Channel Islands are a unique and delightful cruising ground. Despite their reputation for large tidal ranges, strong currents and rock strewn coastline they are well documented on Admiralty charts and detailed by many independent yachting guidebooks. Crossing the Channel is relatively straightforward so long as you have paid sufficient attention to your passage planning and keep a sharp lookout when crossing the busy ‘traffic-separation’ lanes.

The distances involved in getting here are not as great as people often imagine. Portland Bill is the nearest point on the UK mainland, and this lies just 48 nautical miles from Alderney. The Needles, on the other hand, are only 63 nautical miles from Braye. Any boats departing from more westerly ports, such as Torquay or Plymouth, will probably make for St Peter Port in Guernsey as their first stop-over point, a distance of around 90 nautical miles.

The Channel Islands provide an ideal base for cruising. You are easily able to ‘island-hop’ between each of the islands within both the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey. It is an ideal cruising area where most of the main ports are a day’s sail apart, including some ports on the adjacent French Coast. The port of Carteret is just 30 nautical miles from St Peter Port while Dielette lies only 16 nautical miles from Alderney.

A visit to Herm Island is an essential part of any cruising holiday to the Channel Islands. Both the island and its restaurants are very popular with local boat owners. Stay and visit this island paradise to enjoy its unspoilt natural beauty and peacefulness.
