    Arrival by Sea

    Having arrived in Alderney from Guernsey some years ago, we decided this time to approach from the Western end as we were heading from Plymouth. By the way, I had made various passage plans just in case the weather (or anything else) turned nasty. As it was, we arrived about 3 hours earlier than predicted, and sailed up the southern coast of the island, and then into Braye Harbour. Like all of the Channel Islands, the coasts are littered with off-lying rocks and reefsj, and it pays to keep well off the coasts until you know you are in safe water.

    Now there's a great alternative to flying to Alderney. Bumblebee has a regular year-round schedule allowing day returns or longer stays in either direction. It's a new boat and it's clean comfortable and fast. We took a day in Alderney during our Guernsey holiday and loved it. Great customer service, town-to-town and a fraction of the air fare. Highly recommended

    Getting to Alderney is part of the fun. The Trislander planes are tiny, seating only 15 passengers. Boarding is individually by name. Inside the cabin is snug. You really don't want to take a large item of hand luggage, but the good news is that you don't need to wait long for your hold baggage to appear.

    The flight time from Southampton is about 45 minutes, and from Guernsey is 15 minutes.

    Aurigny operate direct flights from Southampton, or via their Guernsey hub from various UK airports (Gatwick, Stansted, Bristol, East Midlands and Manchester), Jersey, Dinard and Grenoble.

    Many visitors to Alderney arrive by means of their own yachts. There are 70 or so visitor's buoys adjacent to the Admiralty Breakwater, but you may well have to raft up, especially in July and August, as we did. There are no ferry services to the Island, and if you arrive in, say, Guernsey, you will have to travel over by air. There is a move to create a Marina, but at this time, it is only at the debating stage.

    Island Air Services

    View towards the Airport!

    Alerney is well served by flights, mainly from the other Islands, but some from Bournemouth and Southampton also. The airport, or more really closely resembling an air strip, is very close to St Anne, the main town. Take a look at some of the video clips on 'You Tube', for great views of the Island from the air.

    How to get to Alderney

    There are regular flights to Alderney from Southhampton, Bournemouth, Brighton, Jersey and Guernsey. The planes going there are though very small. One is called Trislander, which carries up to 15 passangers and other Islander, which takes up to 8 passangers. I was very surprised to fly with such a small plane. It was a bit noisy, but overall it was nice flight. We used Auringy airline, although Blue Island airline company is also flying to Alderney.
