Great Ferry trip to Fowey. Captain and Staff were very friendly, and very reasonably priced. The sea was a bit choppy, which added to the fun.

Travelled from Mevagissey to Fowey during peak season. Be sure to get there in plenty of time as the boat may be full. We got there 45 mins before our time to be sure of a seat - others before us in the queue had...More

A lovely trip across to Fowey (Foye), not a completely mirror sea, but this boat was still pretty stable. Even when the sea spray picked up the crew quickly dropped the plastic side curtains, making sure we stayed dry. It was a full ferry both...More

A wonderful boat trip between Mevagissey and Fowey. The crew were very well organised and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were very friendly and went some way off their normal route for us to see dolphins, which was an amazing experience. This...More

Lovely little ferry. We saw porpoises and seals. Best way to travel between Mevagissey and Fowey. You get to see Dawn French's house coming in and out of Fowey and the wildlife is pretty good, plus the coastline views are spectacular. Only issue is that...More

From Mevagissey to Fowey, it is just easier than driving. The car park in Fowey is up quite a steep hill whereas the boat leaves from the centre. Just be aware that there is no handrail on the steps when alighting at Mevagissey so can...More

We stayed in Fowey and wanted to visit Mevagissey so rather than sit in the car again we opted for the Ferry, good choice. We didn't research and just turned up and got lucky. I would imagine in the school holidays this is even worse....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.
