SPM Ferries informs its passengers that firearms and ammunitions transportation is regulated. Firearms have to be transported so that they are not immediately useable. They must be placed within a soft or rigid holster. In each and every case, firearms have to be unloaded and declared during the purchase of the ticket. In addition, weapons belonging to walk-on passengers travelling aboard the ferries must be given to the operation service before entering the ferry terminal. Regarding the trips of the Jeune France, firearms and ammunitions have to be given to the crew. Firearms must never enter the ferry terminal.
