£1.50 each way for adults - various prices for children, free for dogs. Reasonable price for a lovely little trip. Punctual, staff very nice. A great way to get around.

What is the fare? Is there a discount for groups? Do you take dogs? There is no list of times at the Mount Batten landing. What are the timings? What days and hours does the ferry run?

Do you mean Mount Edgecombe from Admiral's Hard to Cremyll or Mount Batten from Commercial Wharf?
