Newest Review: ... correct. The outward journey was delayed for an hour, but we were quite prepared for this, in the knowledge that the company still has only one craft operating. However, the speed and efficiency of loading and embarkation was really impressive, together with the light and airy feel within the vessel, the politeness of the staff and the lack of fuss with which disembarkation took place.

Support SpeedFerries. If they were to fold due to the current hiatus, you can guarantee the pirates on the Dover-Calais crossing would increase their prices again particularly with the current restrictions on the Chunnel. I reckon it cuts 90 minutes off my journey time to Paris compared with travelling by the lumbering giants serving Calais. I find parking on Speed One easier than my local supermarket and it's easier to get out of my car. Earlier this year I was travelling with double crutches. The road route from the ferry to the autoroute has been improved greatly in the last year and is now very acceptable. Boulogne is a more charming destination for a weekend than Calais. The tranquility of the hoverport in Dover and Boulogne is fantastic compared with the chaos of East Dover and Calais. I have been crossing the channel many times a year since 1977.

I used this service last week and found it to be very efficient and an easy journey to france. The staff were really polite. The ship was on time and crossed the channel without effort.It will be a very great loss if this service goes

Good service all round - I would say that the crossing is actually more like 60 minutes and not 50 minutes! - 50 minutes is definately a myth... Basic service on board - but remember getting booze on a Sunday is not good as all places are closed on a Sunday for this!The fantastic thing about Speedferries is that it cuts out 20 miles of driving south towards Paris (i.e dont go via Calais) and when the weather is rough (like mine) the Catermaran STILL runs!!! It was great!! Remember 60 minutes crossing - but well worth travelling to Boulogne and not Calais.

Definitely the best way to cross the Channel. Was slightly dubious on booking as the price was so low, but having read other reviews which all seemed to be extremely positive, decided that Speedferries was for us, and we were proved correct. The outward journey was delayed for an hour, but we were quite prepared for this, in the knowledge that the company still has only one craft operating. However, the speed and efficiency of loading and embarkation was really impressive, together with the light and airy feel within the vessel, the politeness of the staff and the lack of fuss with which disembarkation took place. The return journey was absolutely on time, and we ... Read the complete review

Speedferries. We first travelled with them in Febuary 2005, and found the service excellent. Since them we have travelled with them at least fourteen more times and have booked another load of crossings for 2006. Loading is relatively promt and fast, but cars are often packed closely together, but this is nothing new after travelling with any cross channel ferry. Onboard, the seating areas are clean and tidy (unlike many P&O boats or hoverspeeds). The other reviewer mentioned something about no obvious colour scheme. He is clearly colourblind as the ship is coloured blue and light green. The boat has a very plesent atmosphere, you cannot ... Read the complete review
