We booked this as part of the bus and boat day ticket. Was disappointed with the boat part as there was no commentary. Just a boat ride around the harbour

It's not expensive, prices vary from around £1.50 to about £4.00 depending on how far you go and if you want a single or return fare. See the Bristol ferry website for details. Hope that helps!
