Islands Unlimited is using social media to announce its intention to establish a seasonal foot-passenger ferry service between Guernsey and Jersey, with some sailings to Alderney.
The company says its 240-seater boat should improve the travel experience for locals and boost tourist numbers.
A spokesperson for the company says they believe this will result in a long-term return for the tourism industry:
“Our Vision is to become the preferred provider of inter-Channel Island foot passenger sea travel, connecting the islands with a competitive, reliable and customer-friendly service which in turn will drive growth across the islands and establish greater opportunities to visitors and islanders.
The service will be instrumental in increasing visitor numbers, duration of stay and, essentially, visitor spend.”
Tickets could be on sale as soon as January 2024.
The company declined an interview at this stage.
