A pedigree break by sea for you and your best friend.

At Guernseytravel we want to make it easy for you to bring your whole family on holiday with Condor Ferries. We can recommend the best island package for you and your four legged friend. Plus we can offer top tips for travelling together and making the most of your island break.

Guernsey offers the perfect break for your canine counterpart, being very dog-friendly with open spaces, sea swims and cliff walks. Also, many pubs and cafes offer bowls of water and dog treats to keep everyone well fuelled for their holiday adventures. Aside from the outdoor activities there are some very welcoming accommodations for you to all stay together in comfort.

So pack that doggie bag and let us do the rest.



Dog  in Car

Travelling with your car

Working with Condor Ferries, from the UK to Guernsey, we ensure that you have a pawsome and hassle-free ferry crossing. When you bring your dog to Guernsey there is no need for a dog passport, you just need your own valid photographic ID and there is no charge for your dog travelling in your vehicle.

If you’re travelling by car with your dog, they must stay in your car during the sailing. You are asked to ensure you leave windows slightly open and leave some water for your dog. Visits can be made to the car deck during the sailing when safe and you will need to be accompanied by a crew member.


Islander pet friendly cabins

From October 2023, the new conventional "Islander" ferry joined the fleet providing sailings from the UK to Guernsey (and Jersey.) This boat features pet friendly cabins, so your furry friend can travel in style with you in your cabin! You must provide your own pets bedding, bowls, leads and a muzzle. Dogs must be muzzled at all times between your car and your cabin, and if you access the outside deck for toileting or exercise. Pets are not permitted in the passenger lounges, lobbies or restaurants.

Travelling as a foot passenger

When you travel as a foot passenger with your dog, they must travel in an RSPCA approved carrier. Pets aren’t allowed in the passenger lounges however your family friend will be well looked after and will travel in a dedicated pet area on the car deck. In this instance there is a £10 charge each way for your pet.

Life's a Beach

With miles of golden sands for frolicking on and clear waters for splashing in, Guernsey beaches are a dog’s dream. Our beaches are very dog friendly and to ensure everyone enjoys their time on the beach to the max there are certain rules to follow:

Take the lead

Between 1st October and 30th April, dogs can be exercised on the beach at any time and you do not need to use a lead. Between 1st May and 30th September, dogs must be kept on a lead between 10:30 and 18:00 on all beaches.

Wildlife

Dog owners should always prevent their dog from chasing or disturbing wildlife.

Taking care of beaches, parks and paths

If you are a dog owner, pick up after your dog! Please tie the top of the bag. Take the waste home, or put it in a public litter bin. Fines of up to £500 are in place.

Banned breeds

Please note the following dogs are banned in Guernsey: the Dogo Argentino, the Fila Braziliera, the Japanese Tosa (or Tosa) and the Pit Bull Terrier.
