This route provides the ideal opportunity to explore the West Wight by foot, bike or bus. With numerous foot paths, bike tracks, and bus routes, there is no reason to arrive by car. Join us at the beginning of your day at Yarmouth, to be dropped off in Alum Bay at the heart of the action and start your return journey back to Yarmouth by any number of routes via foot path, cycle track or bus, or simply spend the day in the Needles area and come back to Yarmouth by boat in the evening with us again.
Alternatively start your day at Yarmouth exploring the West Wight, finishing at Alum bay and let us take the weight from your feet with an evening trip from Alum bay back to Yarmouth.
