                           GARE MARITIME DE LA BORSE

The Gare Maritime De La Borse was built in 1982 at a time when there were in the region of 12 high speed passenger craft operating to the Channel Islands. With the introduction of the car ferry this trade declined, and the facility is now used only as a terminal for cruise ship passengers; and the pontoons as lay-bye berths for the passenger vedettes, tugs and pilot cutters.
