Runs every 10 to 15 minutes from 0630 to 2100 then every half hour through the night. You could drive... More

The ferry is an unusual attraction. A chain ferry holding about 35 cars taking a few minutes to get you from Devon to Cornwall. There are 3 ferries but there can be a long queue at rush hour or in the summer. The views from ferry are great, yachts, tugs, the naval dockyard.... Our ferry had to wait whilst a... More

Very simple to access, excellent value for money and saved us loads of driving. The only way to get to South East Cornwall.

Queued up for the small ferry at Cawsaw for 25 mins only to find that it holds 60 passengers ? We about 90th in queue!! Needless to say we didn't get on and with only one more at 16.30 (11/2 hours later) things didn't look too great. Quick sit down in the pub got us thinking that the best option... More

We went back to Plymouth via the ferry after driving along the Rame Head coast. It is cheap and a quick way back.

We used this to get between Plymouth and Cornwall and it was fine. Absolute bargain price of £1.50 and it ran on time with no hassle. You drive on, 5minute trip, and drive off. Perhaps avoid at rush hour, as the delays start stacking up. However, for tourists like us, it was perfect and saved a lot of time going... More
