My Father, partner and myself had a most enjoyable trip aboard "The Fairmile" a beautiful, historic vessel. We decided on a bronze ticket having experienced the golden ticket on a previous holiday which tells the story of the origins of the boat and the events of "Exercise Tiger". We had a smooth crossing over to Dartmouth and a bit bouncier... More

We bought the trip from Brixham to Greenway and back, we went to Darmouth on (really exceptional) Fairmile, then we went on to Greenway house (by boat) and came back by their vintage bus. It was a fantastic day, one of highlights of our summer holiday in Devon. We enjoyed every single second of this trip. The coast between Brixham... More

I took the ferry from Brixham to Torquay, whilst on a short break to Torbay in August 2014. The trip only cost £1 one way, which I thought was amazingly good value. The trip was very smooth, the weather being calm, and the skipper came up with some amusing comments on the intercom during the crossing. All in all an... More

Sea-Fari - great little trip around the bay, the commentator was friendly and great with kids. Would recommend if you have an hour to kill in Torquay. Torquay-Brixham Ferry - you can't knock the cost, £8 for a family of 4 (return). Was a little cramped on board but we appreciated it was peak season. Our only gripe, and an... More

We had a lovely family day out from Torquay to Brixham for £2 each return. The crew were really helpful with the kids and the pushchair and Brixham is lovely, if a little crowded!

Stood on the harbour wall waiting for our boat to take us from Torquay to Dartmouth and then up the Dart, I wondered what on earth was pulling up alongside. What I eventually found out was The Fairmile was a little piece of still working history and a trip that was entertaining, informative and thoroughly enjoyable made all the more... More

The Fairmile is a beautiful WWII ship made better by the informative and funny commentary of the crew. Everyone was friendly, helpful and gave clear instructions on where and when to catch the return boat. I was dragged along to Agatha Christie's house, which I have no interest in, by my sister but it was the trip there and back... More

Travelled on the Fairmile for a 2 hour cruise from Dartmouth along the coast to Slapton sands. The commentary given by Ross was both informative and humorous but gave due respect to those lost in Operation Tiger in1944. Would recommend this trip.

An outstanding trip from Torquay, to beautiful Dartmouth and then a narrated cruise along side Shipton sands and description of the tragic events that happened there during WWII. A story not to forget.
