If you do not want to walk 20 minutes around the harbor you can take the small boat (only when there is high tide). It is quite expensive (€ 1,20 per Person, also pram). But the driver was very friendly: we arrived and the boat...More

Without this boat between deauville and trouville you'd be spending a lot of time walking to the nearest bridge. Cost is 1,20€ per person. Or 0,50€ when the water is low. Just be careful service stops at 8pm!

Only takes a few minutes to cross, but fun to be on the boat enjoying the harbor from the inside. Cheap and Fun! No hesitation, go for it!

During summer months a quick cheap foot passenger ferry across the harbour between Trouville/Deauville,(2/3 mins), just euro 1.20 a journey, at low tide you walk across a pontoon bridge for 50 cents. Saves a 15/20 min walk around

A charming family, a jolly ferry boat and a low price make this something you should do every time you are in Trouville

Best way to get from Deauville to Trouville and backwards. In case of high tide you can take a boat. When low tide it will be a bridge. When no tide you will go on the bed of the channel:)

There are not many harbours that you can cross by a pontoon bridge at low tide, and return at high tide by boat. All in all a bit of fun and excellent value as well as a great short cut between Trouville and Deauville.

There's not a lot to say. We crossed at low tide on the pontoon bridge which the children thought was great fun.
