IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Holy Island is a tidal island and can only be accessed twice a day via a causeway road. Please check tide times well in advance of travel on the link provided below and plan your travel and accommodation accordingly for the Holy Island Tours. Emma tries to make the timings of the tours as accommodating as possible for access to the island, however you may be required to book accommodation for a night on island or wait a few hours once the tour has finished on the final day for the tide to open if you do not wish to book more than one nights accommodation.  Emma cannot be held responsible for tidal information that is the responsibility of the participant.
