Maybe the camera angle makes it looking worse, but the jump at 2:25 is not very far from ending under the boat.... Incredibly clear water, wish the Baltic sea would be the same.

It's opened my eyes have to admit. There's a few locations which made me wonder "where the hell is that?"

Looking forward to getting up close and personal with the Jersey coastline next summer with me new toy!

The cave is to the west of Ile Agois and the tall stack is at Beauport. The jumps from Vic Pier into La Collette and off the back of Elizabeth Castle b/water were quite impressive I would have to admit. There's certainly nothing wrong with exploring the local coastline but I reckon it'd be best done on a jetski; you could get really close then. By the way Matt, what's your new toy going to be?

Looks a lot like this

It had never occurred to me that time in Alderney and fun were mutually exclusive, I shall keep a sharp eye out for people enjoying themselves and correct them!

Jersey may be full of whacky characters, but this is really crazy:
