Guernsey (St. Peter Port)

The town of St. Peter Port is the capital and the main port for Guernsey in the Channel Islands. Several ferry lines provide service to England and France, with other ferries connecting Guernsey to the nearby islands of Jersey, Alderney, Herm, and Sark.

Because the harbor is small, cruise ships anchor offshore and passengers are brought into the port in tenders. The local authorities normally set up a hospitality tent on the pier where visitors can pick up maps or wait for the next boat to the ship. (During our visit, the Regatta operated four tenders, so there was never a queue for travel in either direction.)
