Event description
New this year. Seal watching experience on Hilbre island. Come along and see Merseyside's only resident colony. Fully qualified guides.

About this event

Hilbre island in the Dee estuary is a hidden gem of the North West of England, but it is still only a stone's throw from Liverpool, Manchester and only 3 hrs from London.

The seal colony next to Hilbre island has been growing in size since the Second World War. At their peak each year, there are up to 800 Atlantic grey seals in it. However, we cannot guarantee that we will see them close to the island. As with all nature experiences, we need to walk without expectations and see what surprises nature can provide.

These experiences are all planned to start four hours before high water, which gives time to get there and back before this tide. The walk is for individuals capable of a three-hour moderately paced Sunday walk (7 km), and you must be aware that is can be slippery and uneven underfoot on the island.

It will be necessary for all participants to wear sensible shoes, have access to waterproofs and have sufficient drinks and snacks during the experience (we do not supply these). The weather can be very changeable and if inclement, the activity will be postponed or cut short at the discretion of the group leader.

The group leader will be a qualified outdoor pursuits' instructor who abides by the Mountain Training Association's members code of conduct https://www.mountain-training.org/membership/mountain-training-association/about/mta-terms-and-conditions
