£14 return on a rainy afternoon in June was money well spent. Trip takes around 40 minutes along the coastline and we were lucky enough to spot a seal on the rocks. Fully seated but would imagine it gets really busy when the weather is...More

Well worth the £14 return price, on a beautiful summer day there's nothing like a 50 minute sea trip, wonderful way to travel and you don't need to worry about parking

We travelled from Mevagissey to Fowey catching the first ferry at 10 am from the harbour near the lighthouse. You book your return journey when you pay for your ticket. It's really popular, so arrive 1/2 early and get ahead of the queue. (Make sure...More

If you ask the crew before getting on they,ll give you an honest answer whether its choppy or not. We dont wish for anyone to be sick, hence if its looking a little rough, we wont sail for the day.
