The Isle of Sark Shipping Company Ltd is owned by the island of Sark and since 1969 it has been the only operator of the year-round lifeline Passenger and Cargo service between Guernsey and Sark. The 9-mile journey between Maseline Harbour Sark and St Peter Port harbour Guernsey takes approximately 55 minutes.
The majority of the 45,000 return passengers carried on the vessels each year are visitors travelling to and from Sark. The main tourist season runs from April to October but regular passenger and cargo services continue to operate during the winter months, enabling both visitors and residents to travel to and from Sark all year round.
The mission statement of the Isle of Sark Shipping Company Ltd is “To ensure the sustainable provision of safe, reliable, friendly and efficient passenger and freight shipping services for the benefit of residents of Sark and visitors to it”.
- The 9 mile, 55 minute journey is hassle-free, sit outside and take in the stunning scenery; if you’re lucky Dolphins may join the boat for a swim.
- The helpful crew will help you to load your buggy and luggage on and off the ferry and deliver it by tractor to your accommodation.
- IOSS currently owns three passenger vessels plus one cargo vessel, ensuring safe, reliable, friendly and efficient travel.
