New horizons for Bumblebee
As we come to the end of our sixth successful season on the Alderney route, we have sadly reached the conclusion that there is no future for us in Alderney.
Instead, we have turned our attention to bigger things . . . .
The States of Jersey and the States of Guernsey have invited interested parties to submit proposals for the operation of an inter-island ferry starting in 2018.
Bumblebee Marine Limited is an established ferry operator based in Guernsey and has successfully operated a ferry between Guernsey and Alderney for the last six years. It has established an excellent reputation for customer service and punctuality. The company operates the vessel Bumblebee, which does ferry and charter work and also owns Island RIB Voyages in Guernsey, offering exhilarating island eco-tours as well as private and corporate charter. Bumblebee is a dynamic and ambitious company which is well able to meet the challenges of inter-island operation.
Bumblebee Marine have now prepared and made a submission to the States which we believe is a realistic solution and will require much less subsidy than is apparently available.
