How to get to the Chausey Islands?
There are several ways to get to these islands located just 17 km from Granville, so that you can enjoy all the activities available in Chausey.
By ferry:the quickest way
All year round from Granville, you can board one of the ferries run by the Jolie France shipping company. The crossing takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the weather conditions.
If you’re lucky, during the crossing you might see a pod of dolphins or some grey seals resting on the rocks. Don’t forget your camera!
Arrive 45 minutes ahead of departure to collect your boarding passes from the ticket office in the ferry terminal.
You can park free of charge in the car park next to the Granville ferry terminal.
On a yacht:the most customised way
For a day trip or a few days, Franck, the skipper, invites you on board his Gib’Sea 126. According to your specifications, he can take you to one of the fine sandy beaches of the archipelago, drop anchor in an isolated bay, take you for a foodie walk (local products guaranteed!) or a fishing trip.
With Franck, you’ll get not just a crossing to this island paradise, but a real adventure.
You can also sleep on the Mangrove, at anchor, and admire the sunset from the deck, then enjoy a breakfast with the ultimate sea view.
On a traditional sailing ship:the most unusual way
Weigh anchor, hoist the sails and cast off on the last French cod fishing ship, heading for the Chausey archipelago! A day on board the Marité is the perfect way to enjoy an unforgettable experience.
You’ll leave Granville harbour in the morning and drop anchor in Chausey at lunchtime. After a picnic on board, you’ll be taken by RIB to one of the islets of the archipelago. At the end of the day, you’ll head back to Granville, with the opportunity to participate in the different tasks on board.
