British Channel Island Ferries(BCIF) was a ferry operator who ran services between the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands. The company was founded in late 1984 as Channel Island Ferries by a consortium made up of Brittany Ferries, Huelin Renouf and Mainland Market Deliveries (MMD) to compete with SealinkBritish Ferries services to Portsmouth and Weymouth. Channel Island Ferries established their service from Portsmouth to the Channel Islands late in March 1985. In January 1994 it was announced that British Channel Island Ferries had been bought by Commodore Shipping. Today Commodore Shipping operates as Condor Ferries.
