Private landers should make contact with island staff when they arrive; in the harbour, at the farmhouse or via the phone numbers provided in the harbour so that they can be given information and a map.
Landers who are not members of the RSPB pay a landing fee of £10 for adults and £5 for children, RSPB members can land for free.
Tenders should be pulled clear of the steps so that our passenger boats and pedestrians can land safely. Please do not land on the harbour beach between 1st August and 31st October as grey seals may have pups on this beach.
Only registered assistance dogs are allowed on the reserve.
Biosecurity is extremely important on Ramsey and any vessels or bags should be checked for signs of rodents before landing on the island.
