Cruise Jersey is delighted to welcome visiting cruise ships to our island waters. With our breadth of knowledge and proven experience, coupled with outstanding on-island services and facilities, we can offer visiting cruise ships and their valued passengers with an unforgettable escape.

cruise jerseyJersey is located in the northern part of the Bay of St Malo, some forty miles south of the main English Channel shipping lands and only 12 miles off the Contentin Peninsula. St Helier Harbour is located in the Island’s south coast at the eastern end of St Aubin’s Bay.

The main berth is located on the Albert Pier. The pier allows modern manoeuvrable vessels up to 116m in length to berth alongside. The heart of Jersey’s shopping centre is only a pleasant ten minute  stroll from the St Helier Harbour. There are deepwater anchorages to the north-east of the Island off St Catherine’s Breakwater and in Bouley Bay.

Preference anchorages are in the southern part of St Aubin’s Bay and off the Demie de Pas Lighthouse for vessels more than 170m length or 6m draft. Manoeuvrability of the vessel is a consideration in deciding the anchorage position. Tenders land passengers at the Albert Pier pontoon, St Helier Harbour.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
