Whether you’re looking for something different to do on your next day out or wanting to escape your everyday routine, a day trip by ferry is a memory-making experience that no one should miss.
Going by ferry means your trip to the Channel Islands will start on board, and you can go on foot or take your car depending on how you’d like to spend your time at your destination.
