A nice way to get around Bristol and relatively inexpensive. The staff are friendly and you get to see Bristol from a different perspective. There were a few problems on the day I used them, but all out of the control of the ferry company and they adapted well.

Used the ferry to get around the city, brilliant value at £6 to hop on and off . Staff on the boats could not have been more helpful advising where to go and what to see.

What a great way of seeing the centre of Bristol from a totally different perspective than cruising around the docks stopping for a cheeky half now and again

We took a round trip through the docks, to the suspension bridge and back. The sun was shining and we watched the world go by whilst taking in the views around the docks. Great value, friendly staff and a lovely (relaxed) way to see the city.

In particular when returning to Temple Meads, as we were a little early the captain extended the journey on the chance we may see kingfishers. The young Irish woman kindly pointed out the Peregrine Falcons perched... More
