How to get to the Channel Islands?
Take a ferry to the Channel Islands
From the ports in la Manche, you can take a ferry with the DNO shipping company to visit the Channel Islands.
- Set sail for Jersey from the port in Granville or in Barneville-Carteret
- If you want to explore Guernsey or Alderney, you’ll need to head to Dielette.
- As for Sark, you’ll need to change onto another ferry in Jersey.
Depending on the island you want to get to, the distance is not the same from the coast of la Manche. The crossing takes 1 to 1.5 hours, depending on your destination.
When do you want to go to the Channel Islands? There are departures almost daily between April and September. The crossing times vary from day to day, depending on the tides.
Note: You can take your bike on the ferry (at an additional cost), but not your car. Pedal off to explore the paths, greenways and cycle routes!
