After driving all day down to Mevagissey for our honeymoon we decided to stroll around the village to stretch our legs after check in and came across the ferry trip. We thought why not as it was a reasonable price both for a single and return trip and the weather was nice and we managed to get ourselves a return... More

Fantastic trip, worth the money, my father was quite hesitant over the price but my word soooooooo worth it!! It was like a boat trip with the Dolphin hunters... Chris made the effort to seek out the Dolphins and we were not disappointed! Highly recommended

We went on the ferry while on holiday, I must admit I am not the best on a boat. The trip across to Fowey was ok, I enjoyed it. Highly recommended, didnt see any dolphins, possibly next time

Great service. In a fast powerful boat, the sea is quite rough here and can be windy and very wet but all adds to the fun, two staff really friendly i would definitely use a again, much better than getting the bus !

We caught the ferry at the first departure from Mevagissey to Fowey. Myself, partner and dog. The staff were very welcoming and when we tried to get Rolo (the dog) on they were very helpful. Unfortunately Rolo didn't like it. The staff offered a treat for him but he was having none of it. The driver and the other member... More

There was absolutely nothing at the dock should you get there early, however once on board the crew were excellent, detouring for us to see the local dolphins.

We had a wonderful return trip to Fowey from Mevagissey harbour. The journey to Fowey was on smooth seas, with glorious sunshine. Fowey is a beautiful village, with several nice restaurants and take away food shops. There are plenty of benches to sit on overlooking the harbour. The 'Cakey Tea' for Poldark fans is a must! On the return journey... More

Great trip from Fowey to Mevagissey. Crew are very knowledgeable and when we spotted dolphins on the way back, did a detour, so we could get the best view. Amazing views each way and good value for money.

Seemed expensive to begin with but the 35min ride was a great trip and we had the added bonus of seeing some common dolphins which even went under the boat.

We really enjoyed our trip as a return ticket from Mevagissey to Fowey! We were staying at Mevagissey and decided to go on the ferry. You can calculate costs as it cost our party of 7 £77 and would probably be about £10 by car with petrol and parking but we decided it's not everyday you can go on a... More
