Taking Your Pet on Holiday
Where are animals kept whilst on-board?
On Pont-Aven, Cap Finistère and Bretagne there are 2 sizes of kennels (large & small). Cap Finistère is also equipped with 17 pet friendly cabins. Our other vessels do not have kennels and all animals remain in your vehicle. Visits to exercise your pet and allow them a comfort break are made by arrangement with staff at the Information Desk onboard. Visits to the garage on our high speed services are not permitted unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Please note the kennels are not available when the ships operate to/from Caen, Cherbourg or *Roscoff. (*except for Pont-Aven crossings from Plymouth to Roscoff on Thursday nights.) When travelling on Bretagne to St Malo it is not compulsory to use the kennels, your dog/dogs may stay in your vehicle.
