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.

Travel Tips for Caen

Half-timbered houses

by Mikebond

Also in Caen, like in Angers and in other French cities, you will see a lot of half-timbered houses like those you see here. One of them hosts the Musée de la Poste, which I didn't visit. I really like this kind of house.

Saint-Étienne

by Mikebond

The church of Saint-Étienne needed only 15 years to be built and underwent few transformation: this make it one of the highest examples of Romanesque architecture in Normandie. William the Conqueror founded it in 1063 (then he wanted to be buried there) and the church was finished in 1077. It gave shelter to the people of Caen in 1944 during the bombing that damaged only the towers.
The 11th-century façade is not decorated, according to the features of the Romanesque style, while the two bell towers have Gothic steeples. Observe the beautiful apse before entering the church.

The interior of the church is majestic. Worth remarking are the wide Romanesque arches, the matroneum at the base of the windows and the Gothic choir. In front of the high altar (dating of 1771), you can see a modern epitaph that reminds of William the Conqueror's tomb, destroyed during the religion wars and the Revolution.

Study the Furnishings of the Abbey Church

by hquittner

Most Romanesque churches are not elaborately furnished. St. Etienne is no exception. The most important monument was the tomb of William but his sarcophagus was desecrated by the Huguenots in the 16C and his remains were thrown in the river during the Revolution. What is present today is a tablet commemorating his death (1087). The choir stalls nearby are of 1622 and the pulpit is of the same period. The stained glass is relatively old (13C) and is in the Gothic ambulatory chapels' windows of that same period.
