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

Having walked all along the harbourside to the SS Great Britain, this was a good way to return to Cascade steps. Just turn up and pay the fare. Fairly comfortable seats.

Having recently moved to Bristol, we decided it would be nice to spend an hour touring the waterfront with some visitors who were also new to the city. We did a round trip and were lucky enough to have mairéad (hope I got it right)...More

Great way to travel across the city. Friendly crew. Perfect way to travel to SS Great Britain. Check timetables if you need to be somewhere as run every 30 mins

I wasn't even aware that such things existed in Bristol, and only discovered it almost by chance, following a sign from Temple Meads railway station. The boats themselves are not exactly glamorous, but they are a lovely way to see an alternative view of Bristol...More

We have used these ferries before and always found them on time with very informative staff. A great and novel way to see Bristol waterfront

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!

As others have said - don't understand the question, if it is one even! Read the reviews if you wish to know more (and maybe check what you post!)
