Islander pet friendly cabins

From October 2023, the new conventional "Islander" ferry joined the fleet providing sailings from the UK to Jersey (and Guernsey.) 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 are not 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 £11 charge each way for your pet.

Travelling to Jersey with your Car

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.
