Poole Guernsey Ferry reviews

  • "Wonderful staff"

    We travelled to and from Guernsey, the outbound journey was quite rough. My partner bought a jacket potato but when she ate it it was cold in the middle, she took it back and the staff were apologetic and replaced it and offered her a complimentary drink. All the staff on both legs of the journey were incredibly friendly and polite which really gave us a great start to our long awaited weekend break.

  • "Ahhhhh! "

    I arrived on the ferry after a very good check in process. Found our seat and waited to departed. Once departed I didn’t know if to laugh or cry! The captain explained it could be a bumpy ride due to the swells. Ok I thought, I have my trusty sick bands with me, what could go wrong.... well! My first concerns started with the massive swaying of the boat and people falling all over the place! A man staggering towards duty free launched himself at the door opening landing on all fours praising the lord he’d made it! Then just stayed there. That was him done! Next come the crash from the duty free with everything promptly falling off the shelves! Duty free now understandably shut, man still holding on! Next the woman behind me started head banging my seat with her finger in her ears, crying and saying very loudly no no no no, this lasted appropriately 2hours! The gracious staff started to hand out sick bags (a little late in some cases but considerate all the same) just to clarify the lady behinds distress the staff gave her 3 sick bags!!!! Best to be sure! Anyway, we finally arrive and I hear this lady say she’s definitely not travelling back on the ferry even if that means she has to leave her car in guernsey or live there. Now, this lady is in fact my sister - and I fear she may never leave, I’ve had to call our mother in to take her back!!!

  • "Our trip"

    Well where should I start firstly I am scared to death of boats but we have moved to guernsey to live so this was a something we needed to do. So as it's November the water was a bit choppy. And I got very seasick but I can't fault the staff at all they were brilliant helping me and my son Jason especially as he is autistic and panicked a little bit. Also a passenger helped as well a Mr humphrey who I would love to send a thank u card to. Anyway the staff were brilliant and they got me off in a wheelchair while a staff member took my son and drove my car off while I had a cup of tea. So I think it would of been a trip if I wasn't so ill. So I'd like to say thank u to all the condor staff that helped me I will definitely recommend your company to friends and family.

The town is around 30 km to the east of Dorchester and 180 km to the south west of London and is located on the eastern shores of Poole Harbour. The busy port, with many shipping movements each day, is also one of the world's largest natural harbours and is full of wildlife, much of which is visible in the marshes and mudflats and on Brownsea island inside the harbour. There is also a pontoon ferry crossing the harbour mouth back and forward all day, allowing easy access to the Purbecks.
