Usually a pleasant way to cross from Devon to Cornwall, I may not be a regular day traveller but I use the service about 30 times a year, its convenient and is a nice way to cross the Tamar. Sometimes there is 20 minute wait to board the ferry but as I am not in a hurry this does not... More

This ferry is essential to life and it's so cheap and regular really, we can't do without it. Some of the men are friendly especially the newer ones which is nice.

This weather is always a problem at times but this ferry and the staff are always working hard to serve the community, 7 days/week. Never use it enough because I use the Tamar bridge but when I return to Devon, I always try to come back over this chain ferry.

It's a fun chain ferry crossing between Plymouth and Torpoint - regular crossings during the day makes it an obvious alternative to driving the loop around Saltash.

Didn't realise we were moving until half way across! Roll on, roll off. Job done. Fast and efficient. No delays.

There are really friendly staff on this ferry and it is very cheap £1.50 to get to Plymouth and you don't have to pay for going back to Torpoint. There are refreshments and confectionery on this ferry and you can sit inside while going across.

When we get into Plymouth, this is the easiest way for us to get over to Torpoint and then to Wilcove where I have family. The ferry is fast, cheap and efficient. And you get some lovely photo opportunities too!

The ferry is fine in a car but on foot you see how it is usually dirty. It always smells of urine. You can get out of your car and stretch your legs which is good. It only takes about 15 minutes to cross. It is free from Plymouth to Torpoint but you pay £1.50 from Torpoint to Plymouth. It... More

Always handy and scenic way to cross Plymouth to Cornwall. A tad wait often either side is rewarded with views of ships boats and naval vessels when on top deck. Staff always polite when asking for money.
