We used the ferry both as foot passengers and with the car on numerous occasions whilst staying at Bodinnick. Staff friendly and a quick, easy crossing to Fowey. It would have been even better if a passenger ferry ran after 8pm (say, to 11pm to...More

Not much more to say about it except that it an extremely efficient service at a reasonable price that is so convenient and in fact logical when your driving the pretty coast road.
