Love using this great little ferry between Fowey and Polruan. Marvellous views of the river and both towns. I never tire of this service.

A nice little ferry for a 5 minute trip across the harbor from Fowey to Polruan, or vice versa. 13 person limit. Runs frequently. Nice crew

A group of 8 of us were coming back from a walking trip and came back on the ferry. The boat was easy to get on and off. Seating was comfortable and the service friendly and efficient. Great fun trip.

Hardly any delay; charming people and outstanding views. Combined this with the Hall Walk, a crab salad lunch at Crumpets and the Boddinic Ferry by foot. An easy 4.5 mile walk.

Quick and easy way to get across to the other side of the estuary from Fowey. Not an awful lot to see or do when you get there with a couple of pubs and a teashop. Can be used for a circular walk, coming back...More

They should offer a return price as single there and back is overpriced. Good fun though and beautiful views across the fowey estuary.

More of less £13 for 2 adults 2 kids return. Only about 3 minute across- ridiculous cost in our view.
