St. Peter Port (Guernsey) Isle of Sark Excursion Reviews

St. Peter Port (Guernsey) Isle of Sark cruise excursion
Overall Rating
Sark is the smallest of the four main Channel Islands, located about 80 miles south of the English coast. Only three miles long and a mile-and-a-half wide, the island rises 350 feet above sea level and boasts 40 miles of the scenic coastlines anywhere in the world. Sark is the most fascinating of the Channel Islands, free of cars and all the trappings of modern life.

Island history is interesting. Carriage ride=wagon ride with 12 people. Ferry is glorified tender--stuck bobbing in port for 40+ minutes since dock was full.

Enjoyed the ferry ride over, the unique on land transport by tractor and horse-n-cart ride. BUT TOTALLY SPOILED by the day's end drama of the lengthy queues in the hot sun waiting to reboard the tender service back to the ship! Whilst in the massive queue NO member of Princess Cruises was even present to explain - or even offer water - to those very disgruntled passengers, many with young children. Come on Princess, you conduct these tours regularly so take steps to organise contracted ferries (or the such) to alleviate these situations - not just blame the 'hot' weather.

We thought this expensive, and it was the only excursion we booked. I did try to do it independently but this is difficult without knowing exactly the ship's arrival and departure time. So we booked via Cunard. I think it was worth it. The Sark ferry, the Sark Venture came to the shuttle landing stage, so there was no waiting and no searching for the Sark ferry terminal. The time on the island was enjoyable, with lovely local guides. And the chartered Sark ferry - Cunard passengers only - left us back at the shuttle landing stage. And there the trouble began,because quite reasonably we could not jump the queue. We stood in that queue for well over an hour waiting to get the shuttle. There were Cunard customer noises and murmurings, about hanging about and delay. These were well fielded by Deputy Captain Bob, who dealt well with good natured baiting for most of that time. He will go far, Deputy Captain Bob. We will not forget you, Capt Bob!

a bit of a ride in the local ferry - but quite fun once we arrived. We rode bikes (a challenge since it's been MANY years since I had been on one) but terrain was flat-ish and no other traffic to negotiate. Great views and lots of quiet.

We experience our only truly bad-weather day here, and it wasn’t all that awful. Sure it was overcast all day, and yes, it did rain off and on, but it wasn’t a driving rain and we were able to stay dry with the cheap rain ponchos I had purchased just days before we left. We signed up for bicycle riding on the isle of Sark. We took an early tender to Guernsey and transferred to a ferry to Sark. With the exception of tractors there is no motorized traffic on Sark.; everyone gets around by bike, foot or horse drawn cart. Our ferry was apparently a private ferry, and we got to the island well ahead of the scheduled ferry. This was nice because it got quite crowded once the first scheduled ferry showed up. Once we got our bicycles we were on our own to explore the island. I loved this island. You feel like you have truly stepped back in time. The village was quaint, with directional sign posts that gave destinations in the minutes it would take to walk, rather than miles.
