“Water bus service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is definitely the way to travel into the heart of Plymouth. Park free at Mountbatten and nip over to the Barbican whilst watching all the bustle of the Plymouth Sound water traffic. A great way to keep tourists and commuters off the roads. Fast, frequent, friendly and highly recommended.

“A great service and easy access to the Barbican which is brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This is such a good service and it brilliant for travelling to the Barbican in Plymouth and does cut out parking problems if not too busy at Mount Batten. Would recommend this as both places are really good to visit!

“Mountbatten ferry timetable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The timetable and costs are now on the website but basically they are on the hour and half hour from Mountbatten and quarter to and quarter past from the Barbican. Hope this helps.

“Good ferry for foot passengers.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Wish the times were on the website. But it is fairly frequent and it is good for accessing Mountbatten and Turnchapel from the Barbican and vice versa.
