Great way to travel

Great fun on journey across the docks. Went with 2 boys aged 2 and 5 which made it great fun. Loved the Shaun the sheep (mermaid) on the front.

Great way to get around Bristol in a different way. 6 useful stops and reasonable prices including family and day tickets. So celebrate Bristol's Maritime heritage and enjoy some Ferry trips with Bristol Ferry Boats. The boats themselves are all unique lovingly maintained to a superb standard and manned by really friendly and helpful crews. Sometimes there are even friends... More

3 seniors and myself used these ferries all weekend, we loved them in the sun and the rain! Great value and the staff were wonderful even in the pouring rain - well done you made us smile on a very bleak August day.

We took a river taxi from SS Great Britain in to the town centre. It was great value at £1.50 each way and a really pleasant way to travel

A fantastic way to view Bristol Harbourside by boat. Just hop on and sit back and enjoy. The ferry will take you around the harbour. Use it instead of road transport to get to a particular destination or just do a round trip to take in the harbourside views. Great for tourists and commuters.

It's reasonably priced, regular, and the staff on board are informative, passionate and friendly. We learnt a lot about Bristol's history and culture while taking in some great... More
