I travelled with greenway on Fairmile on Saturday the 19th April. Before boarding we were warned it would be choppy ( understatement!). I had a gold ticket so travelled to Dartmouth, stayed there for just over an hour and then took the trip out to Slapton Sands and home again. When arriving at Slapton the captain did everything he could... More

This company has always had a fairly iffy reputation, and now I understand why. We bought tickets at the kiosk by the quay for the ferry from Torquay to Brixham, went to the embarkation point and joined a queue of 100 or so people waiting for the ferry to arrive (it is supposed to run every 30 minutes). After an... More

Thank you for your review with reference to the £1.00 - 35 minute ferry trip across the bay from Torquay to Brixham. Firstly, lets deal with our 'iffy' reputation. I would not consider our reputation as 'iffy' with 149 excellent reviews and 10 poor or for the fact of telling you the truth. Ferries operated on the 19th April from... More

Greenway ferries are absolutely amazing. The journies are undoubtably amazing and really show up rail river link. Rail river link compared to greenway ferries are absolutely horrid and the service that they showed compared to greenaway was horrendous! I would advise you to book with greenway rather than rail river link.

We booked a short river trip for today (February 28th) via the company's internet site on January 21st. We received a confirming e-mail, the payment was taken from my credit card, and I received a reminder e-mail this morning. However, when we got to the supposed departure point, no boat was to be seen. I phoned the company, who told... More

Thank you for your review. Indeed our booking software and website was somehow hacked which caused phantom bookings to be made and our diary to offer trips which were non existent. Our homepage did state this and each page dedicated to each tripped clearly showed the times of operation or indeed closure of the service during the winter. I'm sorry... More

I've read reviews from 19 people who had a 'complaint'. Are they all so stupid that they could find anything about this experience other than the best value in England. Cannot think of anything I could get in the poundland shop that comes even close to being better value than this trip. For gods sake it's a pound for a... More

We opted for the Brixham to Dartmouth ferry trip incorporating an hour trip up the River Dart and 2 hour stopover in Dartmouth. Stunning scenery along the coast and up the river worth doing. Dartmouth a great little place to stopover. Highly recommend and great value for money.

The trip was on a modernised WW2 hospital ship named the Fairmile. It sailed from Brixham around the coast into The Dart Estuary. It docked at Dartmouth from where we took a smaller boat up the Estuary to Greenway the home of Agatha Christie. A very informative day out at reasonable cost. Good value for money. Greenway is now managed... More

Booked a day trip ticket to Dartmouth, fully expecting the Fairmile,on which I have enjoyed many previous trips. I was so so disappointed when we got the smaller and much less suitable Clipper, with it's very limited outside seating and less exciting experience. I just wish I had been able to cancel and get my money back, for once I... More
