LE HYPHEN, THE BAC OF TROUVILLE-DEAUVILLE

N. Plant

Since the end of the XNUMXth century, the Trouville-Deauville ferry, called Le Trait d'Union, has linked the two banks of the Touques at the level of the two ports. The maritime passage between the two cities was born when the first bridge connecting Deauville and Trouville-sur-Mer was under construction, the Union bridge, now renamed the Belgian bridge in reference to the Second World War. The site then attracted many curious people and a ferryman began to discover Deauville on his small boat, going from one bank to the other. This means of transport has continued to give birth to the ferry that we know today.

The ferry crosses Touques at high tide every weekend, public holiday and during school holidays; as well as every day from March to September.

At low tide a footbridge is accessible to cross.

The ferry leaves every 5 minutes, go to Quai Albert 1er in Trouville-sur-Mer to board!

Cross the Touques

And discover the peninsula!

Manu, the current captain, started to lead the bar as a seasonal boy at the age of 14 before passing the diploma of captain of the merchant navy and becoming captain of the ferry a little over 35 years ago.
