We walked along the harbourside to get to the SS Great Britain with our friends, but it's always nice to hop on one of the ferry boats to get around, and we did to get back to the central harbourside. Friendly, efficient staff and service.

Reasonably priced and friendly guys running it, helpful and willing to answer questions. You can hop on, hop off at various places including Millenium Square, SS Great Britain and Bristol Temple Meads Railway station.

We had a smooth ride through Bristol docks where we could see many different types of boat from water level.

Regular trips round the harbour area. Take a day ticket so you can do both sections and able to hop on and off.

The ferry is a great way to see all the sights and to fully experience all the harbour can offer. Get a seat up front if you can. Also avavilble for longer trips - sailing under the suspension bridge and out to avonmouth. Awesome!

We live in Bristol and decided that we don't do enough 'touristy' things. So I decided to try the ferry trip and wasn't disappointed. We walked to Temple Quay and the ferry dropped us off at the Pump House in Hotwells. It was lovely seeing Bristol from a different angle. I would have preferred to have sat outside so I... More

A great way of getting around Bristol with sightseeing and friendly chat on the way. All of our services ran perfectly to time which is not bad for cold January.
