One port, four activities

Since the 12th century, Dieppe’s proximity to Paris and its plentiful fish, explain the prominent role of this town as an important port. Colbert, Vauban then Trudain each drew up extension plans, but it was only in the 19th century that one saw the new basins appear. Passenger service between Dieppe and England added to the prosperity of the town since 1790.


The history of the town is intimately linked to the sea since its origin. Situated in the centre of the town, the port of Dieppe and its numerous basins are totally interlinked to the town.

1250 jobs are created by the port of Dieppe, whose management is in the hands of "Ports de Normandie".
