if you want to travel to Brixham from Torquay or the other way this is by far the best way as long as the weather is reasonable, take a jumper as it gets a little chilly out at sea.

We were on a walking tour and had carefully planned our schedule to utilise the Greenways Torquay to Brixham Ferry. Upon arrival at the pier we found a small notice pinned to the ticket office which said there were no ferries due to high winds and rough seas. In reality it was quite a calm day but raining so we...

We have sailed with Greenway Ferries quiet a bit, great value for money, all the crew are very friendly they will happily sit with you and have a chat. The boats are always clean and well kept. Cannot do enough for you. Keep up the great work

We're very sorry you feel misled because you had to wander around the harbour to the departure point. Ferries unfortunately do not depart from tarmac, they need water thats deep enough to float. You had a 30 minute rest across the bay, so we hope that made up for it. More

Took the Ferry to Dartmouth from Torquay. Was really interesting on the way, great commentary and information delivered with some good banter. Very choppy but the staff were informative and made sure everyone was OK! Lovely day out and prompt return.

£2 return - can't knock that for value! Not sure what else to say, apart from the fact the crew were friendly, the boat (Devonian) was clean and had a small bar on-board for hot/cold drinks, and the journey was very pleasant. Not sure how they can manage to turn any profit on a fare that cheap, but understand there... More

I've been on a few charters before with greenway ferry which have always been excellent. The boats are in immaculate condition and the staff are friendly and professional. I decided to go on some trips this summer and it was a really pleasant experience. Great value for money too!

We visited the Greenway estate recently & travelled both ways from Torquay by vintage 1940s bus. It was a quiet day so the bus wasn't very full. The driver was very helpful & informative & the bus gets a lot of attention from passers by. A great way to arrive at an interesting destination.

£10 each return - silver ticket for a full day out 11am to 5.30pm leave Torquay pull in at Brixham then on to Dartmouth and a trip up the Dart for a hour with a full and interesting commentary from the crew all the way with some real witty humour injected into it for a laugh.
