Not an ordinary hiking trail

Cape claw-less otter My walks are tailored to my clients and designed to be in harmony with the natural environment and with minimal impact.

Group size is therefore kept small and overnight trails are limited to 2 a month on a first booked basis.

I am passionate about my continuing study in marine ecology this enthusiasm is often passed on to the people that join me on the trail. Let me share with you this amazing secret world as it unfolds before your eyes.

The more I discover the more I realise how much there is to learn!

Nature guiding and studying our amazing inter-coastal marine environment and being able to work in this field has been a dream realized for me.

                The sea swallow is a nudibranch a sea slug that has lost its shell. They float on the surface tension of the ocean hunting blue bottles, the sea swallows defence against predators is to secret toxic chemicals reusing stinging cells derived from their own prey. Washed up by onshore winds along with many other pelagic species encountered.
