About The Channel Islands
The Channel Islands are an archipelago of British Crown Dependencies located just a few kilometres off the French coast of Normandy. The largest island is Jersey, its capital being St. Helier, with Guernsey being the second largest island and having St. Peter Port as its capital. The other main inhabited islands are Alderney, Sark and Herm. The total population of the Islands is just over 150,000.
The Channel Islands benefit from regular ferry services to the south coast ports of Weymouth, Poole and Portsmouth. There are also services to mainland France and some inter-island services. The ferries between the Guernsey, Jersey and Portsmouth are principally for the carriage of freight traffic although a limited number of tourist vehicles can be shipped. However, the services to Poole and Weymouth are operated by catamarans that can accept only small freight vehicles.
