We've partnered with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle

We have partnered with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle providing our Le Boat customers the safest way to cross the Channel.

This summer we have partnered with our friends at Eurotunnel Le Shuttle crossing the channel from Folkestone to Calais.  It’s the perfect way to enjoy your home-to-holiday experience.  Sit back and relax in the comfort of your own vehicle for the short 35 minute crossing.  You, your family, friends or Fido can enjoy the stress free experience of travelling in your own bubble.  So what are you waiting for, load up the car and enjoy your travels down to your Le Boat destination.

Boating holiday destinations

When your shuttle arrives in Calais, you are perfectly placed to drive off and straight onto the A16 and the seamless artery of motorways that take you to all our Le Boat bases in France, Netherlands, Belgium and beyond.  The first service station can be found immediately before joining the A16 so take the opportunity to fill up with gasoline and treat yourself to some typical French madeleines before your onward journey.
