Quick and easy access to Cornwall

Very regular and just drive on, drive off!! Well signposted - £1.50 toll on return trip. Recommend this as the easiest way of getting from Plymouth to Cornwall.

We always use the ferry when travelling back home to Cornwall after visiting Plymouth. It is well organised, runs frequently and we have very rarely experienced a delay.

Our son enjoys all trips on this ferry & insists on getting out of car and going walkabout which is allowed. But be aware ferry journey is quick. You only pay on way back to plymouth x

Mundane for us residents and often seen as an inconvenience to those coming to live in the area . However after a few years you get used to it and you get to know the ground crew and it becomes a unique part of your life . There are people north of here who spend fifty weeks a year looking...

Had the misfortune to use this "let's pretend we are sailors" service last week. Woeful. The two blokes so called instructing the cars were as bone idle as they were ignorant. They assume that everyone using the ferry knows the rules of entry and exit, so never bother explaining anything to oncoming drivers. It's a dreadful customer service they offer.... More

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! There is an option of taking the Bridge at the same rate, or travelling ferry one way, bridge the other. We had a ten... More

As a one off visitor the ferry won't cause much concern but being a local it is a very frustrating service. Quite often needs repairs which means reduced service meaning long queues! They take 1 ferry off for a month in August when all the tourists are here...very frustrating. 70% if the staff are miserable. Price is a joke (for... More

Anyone who says the trip across is a pain they are wrong, really quick and value for money. In fact I would go so far to say they should charge either way, don't let the bridge subsidise the cost, we wouldn't have minded paying both ways.

This is not really a tourist attraction and if used as a daily commute you might have other ideas, but I review it as such.Travel by car from Devon to the gaelic county of Cornwall and it is free - you only pay in the opposit direction but you would also have to pay if you went via the bridge...

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...
