Torrential rain and high winds did not stop this "ferry" which is a floating bridge in fact (punt). Extremely economically way of travelling the short distance to Cornwall and return - both for £1.50 per car!

I use this service on a daily basis due to work. As a roll on roll off ferry is great for the day trippers but as a regular service user I can say that communication from ferry to service users is very poor. the staff are the most unfriendly council workers I've ever met the service is always breaking down...

A car ferry that is fast,efficient, and surprising good value - only £1.50 (as at Aug 2014) if you use it both ways.
