The best way to get across to rock from Padstow. Leave the car behind and pop over on the ferry. It’s a regular service that’s reasonably priced for a return ticket. The staff are really friendly and trip is safe and really efficient.

I first caught this ferry 45 years ago! It is still operating in exactly the same way and same place as it was then. It is reliable, cheap and fast.

This ferry has been running for years and is very, very reliable. Depending on the time of day and tides, it starts/finishes at different places along the coastline. Good value for money.

Great way to cross over to Rock. The ferry steers round the sandbanks on automatic pilot. A good pleasant short journey.

Quick, efficient, yet friendly service to Rock and back. Dogs welcomed aboard too. Check where the pick up points are as it is tide dependent. A great little service that I’ve been using for more years than I care to remember.

Regular, fast service. Only £4 return for adults. Takes about 5 minutes to cross the river. Fun for kids. Popular with dogs too.
