Dunkirk to Dover
Our port in Dunkirk is the ideal starting point for a trip to the UK, with 24 daily crossings. Dunkirk’s location, in the north-east of France, makes it easily accessible from Germany, Holland, Belgium and further afield, such as eastern Europe or Scandinavia.
Each crossing takes just 2 hours, so you can get straight back on the road and continue to your destination, perhaps after grabbing a bite to eat or a coffee.
Enjoy your sailing in the peaceful Premium Lounge surroundings as you set sail, taking in the sea views. Priority Boarding can make your crossing even smoother, making you one of the first to board and disembark. Premium Lounge is only available on selected crossings. Please check before travelling.
