We travelled with our 2 sons 8 & 6. The whole trip was painless and the Magic/balloon man was a star all of his own. I would do the trip from Weymouth to Guernsey without hesitation again.

Had no complaints about the ship or service only let down as I booked 2 places on line I did expect to be sitting next to my partner instead we were placed apart the boat was full and we had no chance of moving. On the way back they separated us again but after a little discussion with the booking clerk they moved us.

Weymouth is a town in Dorset, England, situated on a sheltered bay – Weymouth Bay – and the natural harbour formed by the mouth of the River Wey on the English Channel coast. The town is eight miles south of Dorchester, and just north of the Isle of Portland.
Weymouth had long been a port before the Georgians popularized it as a resort. It's possible that a ship unloading a cargo here in 1348 first brought the Black Death to English shores, and it was from Weymouth that John Endicott sailed in 1628 to found Salem in Massachusetts.
A few buildings survive from these pre-Georgian times. But Weymouth's most imposing architectural heritage stands along the Esplanade, a dignified range of bow-fronted and porticoed buildings gazing out across the graceful bay.
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.
