15th anniversary offers

Take your car to France and explore the world’s most popular holiday destination at your own pace. Our port in Dunkirk is just 30 miles from Calais and is well-connected with transport links to a variety of popular holiday destinations and cities in France, as well as further afield to Belgium, Holland and Germany.

With 24 daily sailings between Dover and Dunkirk in both directions, you’re sure to find a sailing which suits both your wallet and your diary. Each crossing takes just two hours, and Dunkirk is well situated for people wanting to visit fantastic European cities such as Bruges in Belgium and the white sandy beaches of Le Touquet in northern France. Both cities are around an hour’s drive from the Port of Dunkirk.

There’s plenty to keep you busy as you sail, with a café bar, self-service restaurant, fast food outlet and shops onboard, as well as a dedicated children’s play area. You can also visit our Sea View Lounge for just £12pp and enjoy the complementary drinks and snacks.
