Condor Ferries


Condor Ferries is an operator of passenger and freight ferry services between the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. The company also operates a service between the Channel Islands and St Malo in France. Condor Ferries established the first high-speed car ferry service to the Channel Islands from Weymouth in 1993. In the winter of 1993/1994, Condor’s parent company, Commodore Shipping, took over British Channel Island Ferries (BCIF) which operated conventional ferry services to the Channel Islands from Poole.
