Islands on the Air is an organisation run by the RSGB, who promote the activation of remote islands around the world. These activations take the form of single operators to whole DX-peditions with many hands, antenna and equipment delivered by container. Some islands which are eligible for IOTA are only accessible when the tide reveal them !!
