We caught the ferry over to St Mawes as we were staying in Falmouth and didn't have a car. It's a lovely trip across the bay and the scenery is stunning. Arriving at the quay brought back lots of childhood memories of this same trip...More

The ferries are an easy and relaxing way to get to St Mawes, the trip takes around 20 minutes, whereas it’s over an hours drive. It’s a nice way to see the coast.

Visited Falmouth and decided to have a ferry trip to St Mawes. The ferry left on time, with assistance getting on and off the ferry. Helpful staff. We will travel with them again when next in Cornwall.
