The departure of the ferry was moved forward because of the weather conditions. I appreciated that Condor ferry informed us by every mean of communucation (sms in English and French, call in English and French and email) 24h before.

Every thing about the ferry is very good, the staff are friendly and helpful, the boat is clean, and every thing went to time and was very smooth. I would use it every time.

Guernsey is a British crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. It is divided into 10 Parishes.
Rising sea levels transformed Guernsey into the tip of a peninsula jutting out into the emergent English Channel until about 6000 BC, when Guernsey and other promontories were cut off from continental Europe, becoming islands. Guernsey’s living history book begins with Neolithic Man and the oldest manmade structure in Europe.
The island formed part of Normandy from 933, forging a link between Britain and France that survives in Norman Law, surnames and Guernesaise, the local language. Guernsey sided with England in 1204. Castle Cornet was built to repel a French invasion and today houses some of the island’s best museums.
The 20th century also left its mark, when the islands became bulwarks in Europe’s WWII Atlantic Wall.
St-Malo is a port city in Brittany northern France on the English Channel. Walled and built with grey granite stone, modern St-Malo traces its origins to a monastic settlement founded by saints Aaron and Brendan early in the sixth century. In later centuries it became notorious as the home of a fierce breed of pirate-mariners, who were never quite under anybody's control but their own; for four years from 1590, St-Malo even declared itself to be an independent republic. The corsaires of St-Malo not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield. Jacques Cartier, who colonized Canada, lived in and sailed from St-Malo, as did the first colonists to settle the Falklands - hence the islands' Argentinian name, Las Malvinas. Now inseparably attached to the mainland, St-Malo is the most visited place in Brittany - thanks to its superb old citadelle.
