Passenger Ferries

At Poole Harbour Commissioners, we act as a staging point for ferries travelling to and from mainland Europe and the Channel Islands. We have ferries departing daily to Cherbourg in France courtesy of Brittany Ferries and the Channel Islands courtesy of Condor Ferries.

Cherbourg, France

If you’re looking to travel to and from France, then Brittany Ferries will get you and your vehicle there quickly. Crossing time is just 4 hours and 15 minutes and this service runs all year long.

Channel Islands

Between the months of April and October, Condor Ferries will take you across the Channel Islands on their Fast Craft service. Crossing time to Jersey is 3 hours and just 2 hours and 40 minutes to Guernsey.
