We took a ferry from Poole to Guernsey at 9:15 in the morning. There was a parking close to the ferry terminal for 7 quid per day. Check in process was straight forward as we did not have baggage.
I was slightly concerned if we had to carry the passport for this trip. Ferry operator confirmed there was no requirement from Ferry operators. Finding immigration and passport controls at each point, Departure & arrival at Guernsey, Departure and arrival at Poole sort of made me slightly concerned. My concerns were just useless. A passport was not asked at any point of the journey. Not even ID card was required.Same terminals are in use for the ferry departs to France and other countries, I presume this is the reason to see passport control in terminals.
The ferry ride was itself a quite exciting for us considering this was the first longest ferry ride in our life. Once we got onboard, we hear the warning from Captain to take extra care while on the terrace and view point of the vessel due to rough sea conditions.
Despite rough sea condition, there were lots of things to see in the path.
The obvious scenery was a panoramic view of Poole harbour following by Brown Sea Island, Brown Sea castle, chain ferry, Old Harry Rocks and so on. Photos are in order as the day progressed.
