At just £1 per adult each way this is a cheap way to spend 30 mins on the sea travelling between Brixham and Torquay. Departures every 45minutes but look out for the last boat back, if you miss this you can always get a bus. The last one advertised back toTorquay was 5pm but this wasnt running. The boat got... More

Local people, We went down to the harbour today to enquire about a day trip to Dartmouth for our family in August, had to plan it because our little grandson has special needs . On approach the pushy sales plonker gave us a leaflet which is just what we wanted, then when my husband asked if they could accommodate wheelchair... More

We were going to travel to Dartmouth from Torquay on a sunny day last week. I had already researched this company and had remembered the advice on their website which states 'Do not be coerced into another trip on a boat, travel aboard our seagoing ship supporting true maritime heritage' so when we approached Torquay harbour and someone asked us...

What a wonderful way to spend a day. Lovely staff who bring the trip and places you pass come to life with interesting local knowledge. Incredible value for money, we will certainly do it again, and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

We had a fabulous day out in Torquay. Starting with the Fairmile Ship (which is an old Royal Navy Ship from the WW 2 days). Fantastic sea crossing to Greenway House via Brixham and Dartmouth. The crew were funny and very professional. The crossing was great and I highly recommend this as a trip for anyone. It was faultless. We... More

We chose to use the local, small ferry service from Torquay to Brixham and to do some mackerel fishing. Prices were unbelievably cheap, much to do with local competition no doubt. Greenway boats were pretty small but this meant personal service and a chatty crew. We were told there was a lot of mackerel about so we went on a... More

We had an amazing day out! 2 quid return from Torquay to Brixham. With a beautiful day like we had the 30 mins on the calm sea was sublime! I recommend all to do this and it is very very easy to do :)

Took a trip on the fairmile to Dartmouth from brixham. Did the silver trip which cost £10 per person and was excellent value for money. We saw grey seals on the way to Dartmouth, had a very pleasant cruise up the river dart and a couple of hours in Dartmouth before the trip back to brixham. It was a full... More
