Join Walking.im on a summer’s morning exploring the Calf of Man trip.
Departing from Port St Mary Harbour at 9.45 am our boat journey will take in this stunning coastline with its magnificent rock formations and our skipper will us alongside to view the 1000’s of noisy sea birds on Sugarloaf Rock and a close up of the ‘Drinking Dragon’.
After landing on the Calf, we explore this amazing and magical place, far from the madding crowd, taking in the history of the lighthouses, flora, fauna and hopefully catch up with one of the friendly bird wardens for the latest sightings from the observatory. The island should be bathed in purple from the heather in bloom as we circumnavigate the whole island with its views back to the island and far-reaching views out to sea. Fingers crossed we might catch a glimpse of some Marine wildlife with Basking Sharks and Dolphins often seen off the southern shores.
Finding a beautiful place to stop we will have light refreshments of cake and fizzy pop.
This will be an enjoyable trip, please bring clothes to suit the weather on the day and wear walking boots, shoes, or trainers and some water to keep you hydrated. The walk will only be about 3-4 miles but with so much to see we will have plenty of opportunity to take it all in.
There are no loos on the Calf, so please bring whatever you require with you. Walking.im are UNESCO Biosphere partners so please folks let us bring all our rubbish back and leave nothing but footprints behind.
Walking.im are fully accredited and insured for guided walking activities and follow industry guidelines to ensure your safety so that you can enjoy the walking experience with confidence, and we will support you throughout the trip/walk.
Please also bring any medication which you may require and inform walking.im at the start of any medical issues which we should be aware of. I will be asking everyone to sign a medical/risk disclaimer before the start of the trip at Port St Mary.
*Please can we meet beside the Harbour (just down from the Albert Hotel) approximately 15 minutes before departure. Please use the loos, if you need to, before we set off and if you are delayed for whatever reason please contact myself ASAP.
This trip is £35 pp, including the boat transfer and refreshments.
The boat skipper’s decision is final regarding the crossing, and I will contact everyone ASAP if the trip is cancelled due to poor weather or sea conditions and a full refund given and the trip hopefully re-arranged. Please provide a mobile contact number either by text or message me through social media and if you have any special dietary requirements regarding cake then please let me know in advance.
Thanks again for looking into ‘A summers morning on the Calf of Man’ and I look forward to seeing you all on the 25thJuly.
