So great, worth the trip even if you didn't need to go anywhere. The people who work on the ferries are incredibly friendly, as are the chaps in the harbour. Also took the ferry to Place which was a hoot on a small boat.

An enjoyable trip both ways. Crew very good in helping you board, and exit the boat at St Mawes, and on the return trip. We were a party of three, the crossing was quick both ways, Announcement on board regarding safety, which was clearly given. St Mawes is lovely, Great day out. Recommended.

An enjoyable boat trip from Falmouth to St Mawes, regular service and friendly helpful crews. I tad on the dear side with concessions (student) only amounting to 50p. Better than driving though.

We were lucky enough to take this trip on a beautiful day and had a very pleasurable trip. As it was early season, it was not too busy and proved to be a great way to take in the sights.
