Without a doubt the best Ferry service we have ever used. Friendly staff, crossing was smooth to Brixham. Great value for money, frequent trips meant no hanging around for the return journey home. Will definitely use again when we are in the area

Really friendly crew and the captain was giving out really interesting information about the bay. I've lived here 20 years and didn't know some of the things he was telling us about. Really lovely way to travel across the bay 😀
