Harbour Tots – Parent and Toddler Group

We are very pleased to announce that we will be running Harbour Tots sessions during Autumn 2021 subject to the Government guidelines for Covid-19.

As before, the sessions will be outside and run from 10.30am to 12noon. The classroom will be available for use of the toilet facilities.

We will be limiting the number of children and adults participating to ensure we are Covid secure. 

The charge for a session is £5 per household/support bubble which is non-refundable unless the session is cancelled by Chichester Harbour Education.  Each household/support bubble should consist of a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children

All sessions must be booked and paid for in advance through Ticket Source.

Please come dressed for the weather and with sun screen. Please bring your own refreshments.

Sessions will only be cancelled in severe weather conditions. All participants will be contacted by 5pm the day before to be informed of any cancellation.

Paddlesports and the Seals of Chichester Harbour

Since Chichester Harbour featured on BBC One's Countryfile  programme there has been increased interest in seeing the seals that find a safe haven in this harbour. 

There has been a dramatic rise in the number of people kayaking, paddleboarding and canoeing over the last couple of years.

Please avoid the seal haul-out site but if you do happen to find yourself on the water in the vicinity please keep at least 100m away to avoid disturbing the seals.  Some will be onshore but there may be some in the water.  They may be nursing young pups and will be very protective of them and potentially aggressive if approached too closely.

Check out The Solent Seals Code of Conduct for more information.
