Iris is the first daily freight shipping service between Jersey and Guernsey. We sail every day of the year, except for Christmas Day, delivering a wide range of commercial and personal items between the islands.
As a local, independent company, Iris provides a reliable and efficient freight delivery service. Our principal captain, David Nuth, has over 30 years knowledge in Channel Islands’s waters. The crew is professionally qualified and will ensure that your items are safe.
Captain Dave Nuth has been working on boats for 30 years.
Theseus II was Dave’s previous boat, from which he ran a highly successful charter fishing business Tarka Sea Trips.
Dave identified a space in the market in that the Channel Islands lacked a reliable fast inter-island freight service. In 2015 he purchased Channel Chieftain V and began running a daily service between Jersey and Guernsey.

Great Service from Iris Freight today! Drop off a tractor wheel at 3.30pm yesterday, and it arrives bang on time at 7.30am in St Peter Port this morning. Even in this terrible weather.
Just a note to join the chorus saying ‘thank you’ for providing such a reliable delivery of the nationals to Guernsey. You have exceeded expectations by some margin.
I am part of the team at Guernsey Press which has just acquired Le Gallez and I know how important it is to our customers to get their daily read.
Keep up the good work!
Your service has been exemplary following the withdrawal of the previous poor air service. I trust that we can continue to rely on your superb service by the M.V. Channel Chieftain & it’s crew in supplying newspapers well into the future.
Funnily enough several of us were discussing only today how brilliant the Skipper, crew and boat, the Chieftain has been since they started operating the delivery of our national papers in all weather conditions and then came home and found an item on the Letters page of the Press, saying exactly that.
We are all full of admiration – and in some of the wild weather we have had the vast majority of us wouldn’t put to sea in an ocean liner if we could help it, never mind your small craft!
Well done and thank you.
