“Great boat trip!”

Fowey to Mevagissey Ferry
Ranked #2 of 19 things to do in Mevagissey
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I'm quite scared of boats (had a nasty accident once getting on board) so when my partner suggested this, I was a bit nervous. But once aboard, I really loved it, plus it's a much quicker way of getting to Fowey than by bus. Staff are friendly and informative, and the views from the boat are glorious. Of course we were very lucky with the weather - the sea was like a millpond - and two days later the ferry was cancelled because it doesn't run if the sea's too rough. If you're in Mevagissey or Fowey give this trip a go.

A great trip for a day out in Fowey. Friendly, professional staff. Lots of information on the boat to read too, about Fowey and Mevagissey. Well worth doing. Lots of wildlife to look out for too.

Really enjoyed the trip to Fowey and back to Mevagissey, helpful friendly staff. I intended to help my daughter onto the boat and go back for her wheelchair but they went and carried it on the boat and stowed it away, very helpful.

We boarded the ferry after looking around Mevagissey. We have been to Fowey a few times before and have always parked at the top of the town. On this occasion my mother, who has difficulty walking up and down hill, suggested we catch the ferry. After the usual squabbles between the children over who was going to sit at the rear of the boat we had a lovey journey. We caught the last ferry back and the sea was quite rough. We got a lot of sea spray which wasn't a problem as we had our pack-a-macks. The children thought the sea spray was hilarious.
