Warden Led Activities

The island Warden offers events to visitors staying on the island which are a valuable introduction to the islands natural history and conservation work taking place at Lundy.

Every week all year round there are a number of different activities held in which visitors staying on Lundy can take part. These take various forms.

Rockpool Rambles are planned on days with a suitable low tide.  With the warden you can delve into the rockpools in Devil's Kitchen to discover some of the weird and wonderful seaweeds and animals that are uncovered by the tide each day.

‘Lundy: Above and below the waves’ is an evening talk and slideshow held each week to illustrate the wealth of flora and fauna on and around the Island.  These are held all year round in the Wheelhouse of the Marisco Tavern.

Guided Walks around the southern half of the island are held throughout the year and depending on the season will take in different aspects of Lundy’s variety of habitats. 

Snorkel Safaris are held between June and September and are a chance to get into the water and experience marine life first hand. Accompanied by a snorkel instructor you may be surprised by how much marine life is living just below the waves!
