    The port for Caen is about 12 miles away from the City and you should be able to take a sort of shuttle bus into Caen itself from Ouistreham. You can see some great aerial views of the port here:

    As Pedro says look for the train for the trip to Cherbourg.

    AND when you have visited PLEASE write up your visit on VT as others will be very pleased to learn more.

    Irregular service but about every 1 or 2 hours on weekdays, journey time about 70 minutes.

    There is no practicable bus alternative.
