Lovely to arrive at the SS Great Britain from the city centre by boat. Reasonably price and helpful crew

Marvellous attraction & also a great way for commuters to access the Centre nearly went bankrupt recentlt but people from Bristol chipped in to save the ferryboats!!...........they do boozecruises as well stopping off at several Pubs by the river........I once got very drunk on one of them but if you don't overdo it it's a "must do" in Bristol Doug...

We got on in the centre - went around the harbour past all the sights, past SS GB and got off at the bottom of the hill up to Clifton....short climb takes you to the Suspension Bridge.

Single or return fares to certain stops, or take a round harbour trip. Good value for money. Different way to travel, kids enjoyed the novelty. We took a return fare from harbour to SS Great Britain. Two adults, two kids cost £9 return. Friendly helpful boat staff. They willingly helped other families with pushchairs.

We used to the water taxi from the cascades to the Cottage, but should have only got a single as its not far and walked almost all the way back. There are 2 and they come every 20 minutes

Frequency, cost and friendliness of staff all contributed to an excellent service. the day ticket is worth the money if you are in centre of Bristol for the day and want to see attractions like the museum, SS Great Britain and deliver you to the wateride eateries.

Decided on a whim to go for a boat ride with the husband and daughter, as we had not long moved to bristol (although i am born and bred) i thought it would be a good way to show my daughter some of the fantastic city. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and the boat sturdy (have a slight fear... More

The ferry boats are a great way to see Bristol harbour. The staff are very friendly and it made for a very relaxing afternoon of sightseeing.

Great boats, friendly staff! Running on time- what more could you want. Took us to and from SS Great Britain for a couple of quid and our five year old was free! Goes right in the centre of Bristol town.

We recently used the ferry to visit the SS Great Britain and explore the surrounding area. A good way to see another side of the town, away from road traffic.
