Roscoff (France) cruise ferry port

In 1968, the French government agreed to build a deep water seaport here. In 1972, as all ferry operators were reluctant to start the relatively long (6 hours) crossing between Plymouth and Roscoff , Alexis Gourvennec (1936-2007, pig farmer, economic leader) and his colleagues founded Brittany Ferries. In the following years, the seaport was developed as a freight ferry port serving via Ro-Ro ships Breton's export of agricultural produce, and also the car tourism and short breaks holiday travel sectors.

The small Ile de Batz island (population around 600) is located nearby and can be reached from the harbour by launch.
