Gumption's Nature Tours Are Back!
Take advantage of this exciting opportunity to tour Necker Island owned by Sir Richard Branson himself! Gumption has exclusive rights to bring tours onto the island to visit the lemurs, large tortoises, and much more of nature's gems.
Tours can be booked as usual from our website below using the 1-2-3 steps. Safety is our number one goal for each and every one of us and whilst Necker Island is being restored there are a few things to bear in mind: No FLIP FLOPS will be allowed on our tours and proper walking shoes or sneakers are a requirement. Not having the required shoes will cause you not to join the tour.
Several of the species you'll see on Necker include Rock Iguanas, giant tortoises, flamingos, lemurs, scarlet Ibis, cockatoos, and others. A member of the Necker animal team may also guide us on the tour as well to provide us with knowledge about the island.
Please note the dates on our website are subject to change. Tours will be from 10am-12:30 pm or 1:00 - 3:30pm, and we ask for a minimum of 6 persons and a maximum of 12 for all tours. If under 6 persons, please note you’ll be charged for 4 adults at full cost and 2 children at full cost.
Necker Island is a private island and so photography is to be kept at a minimum and there is to be no filming without prior approval. If you are unsure please speak to Gumption before your visit or the team on Island during your tour.
Feel free to message us with any questions. Once agreed with everything let us get you signed up for a magical experience.

Guests may arrive at Necker Island by boat on their own and connect to one of the mooring balls. Or you may hire Gumption to pick you up anywhere in North Sound and shuttle you to the island. A shuttle fee of $40 per person (cash only) to/from Leverick Bay or $80/pp to/from Spanish Bay will be collected by Gumption if a request is made one or more days in advance. For shuttle requests made the day of tours, there will be a $20 per person (cash only) fee additional fee. Please confirm the pickup location with Gumption by email the evening before your tour. Gumption's boat shuttle holds a maximum of 12 passengers.
Due to the fact Necker Island is a private island and Gumption has been given exclusive privilege to bring guests, the availability of the island is not guaranteed more than 30 days out and is based on the Branson family's schedule. The tour is focused entirely on Necker Island's mission of conservation and wildlife. No introductions will be made to Richard Branson in the event he is on-island and visible during the tour. If the tour does interact with Richard Branson, no photos may be taken without Richard's permission. Thank you for your consideration, and we hope you can join Gumption on this amazing experience!
