Go Guernsey Land & Sea is an independent, family run outdoor activity company owned by Phil and Trudy Le Poidevin. It started life as an already existing cycle hire company that Phil took over in 2015. As it was then and still is now, the island’s largest supplier of hire bikes. Along came 2017 when Phil launched Go Guernsey Land & Sea providing sea-based activities. They have worked hard at making their customers happy, safe and take away a good experience and memories of Guernsey.
Phil and Trudy both grew up in Guernsey exploring and experiencing it for themselves whilst learning about the unique environment, wildlife and flora we have here along with some great hidden spots and adventures along the way. After much traveling themselves, they understand that doing their best to provide an eco-friendly and socially aware business whilst you make the most of your time in Guernsey is what it’s all about. Ethics and responsible tourism is the key to keeping our island sustainable, Phil and Trudy share an interest in La Societe Guernesiaise (a local version of The National Trust) and The Ramsar Convention (for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands) and will do what they can to work with these and any other individuals, charities or businesses to ensure Guernsey is a happy and healthy place!!!!
