Carteret Jersey Ferry reviews

  • "Many waves"

    If you easily get seasick, it is not advisable to make this trip. In the morning, the sea is not very calm. Everything else is neatly arranged and there is enough space on board to sit and relax together. We were four in total and by morning, we had already taken a great tour which helped tremendously. The ship left on time, there's enough to eat and drink on board, if your stomach can handle it! Less waves on the return trip to the relief of my daughters!

Carteret Guide

The town and port of Carteret is a popular coastal resort located in the north west of France. The town, which can trace its history back to Roman times, evolved into a resort during the Belle Epoque, when seaside holidays became the vogue. Declared a "tourist town" in 1921, Carteret since 1995 has been recognised as having a Blue Flag beach which is a designation awarded to coastal areas adhering to specific environmental standards. In 1965, the towns of Barneville-sure-Mer and Carteret were merged to form one municipality.

Sometimes referred to as the 'port of isles', the Port of Carteret is the present port of Barneville-Carteret and is located on the right bank of the mouth of the Gerfleur River, at the end of Cape Carteret. The large pier and south dike were completed in 1880; the following year, a ferry began service to Jersey. In 1945 the small port, used as a shelter for fishermen during spring tide, was enlarged with the help of combat engineers from the American 280th Battalion stationed in Carteret.
