we paid £2 for a return from Brixham to Torquay, which for a half hour boat trip is an absolute bargain. if staying in Brixham or Torquay it is far easier to get the ferry, than drive around the bay. ferries run every 45 mins off peak, through to 5 pm. They do not run in bad weather though. staff... More

I had a lovely short cruise and it was such a lovely day even on my own it was pleasant. We had a great commentary from a young man and it was most entertaining. In fact it was quite witty. I had some refreshments and and the trip itself was not expensive. I would recommend it. I like to take... More

In September we spent a day on a WWII heritage Warship, it was the Fairmile departing from Brixham. What a wonderful experience, we first of all sailed to Dartmouth where we spent an hour and a half in that lovely town. Boarding the Fairmile again we then cruised to Torcross ,Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands. At Slapton Sands we learned... More

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!
