Bumblebee Marine Limited is a Guernsey marine enterprise company.
We successfully ran a ferry service between Guernsey and Alderney from 2012 - 2107 and now operate eco-tours, history tours, thrill rides and offshore experiences through Island RIB Voyages.
Last year we tendered for the provision of a Jersey-Guernsey inter-island ferry service and previously had submitted proposals on several occasions for the operation of a Guernsey-Alderney ferry. Both were ultimately unsuccessful.
We are dynamic and ambitious and always seeking new marine and leisure opportunities in the Channel Islands and beyond.
Bumblebee, the yellow catamaran, has been a familiar sight in local waters for the past 6 years but now she has sadly left the island.
She has taken thousands of people on island cruises, wildlife trips, children's parties and corporate charters, and has raised a lot of money for local charities. She provided a regular summer ferry service to Alderney - especially when it was foggy!
She is a fantastic boat and we are all very sad to see her leave, but we continue to grow our sister company Island RIB Voyages. and recently acquired a second RIB.
We've had no communication from the States of Alderney about our plans for a larger ferry and with our Jersey-Guernsey ferry tender being unsuccessful we have decided to leave behind the politics and move forward in exciting new directions.
Goodbye Bumble, it's been a great journey
