Well organised, easy to use! Even when you think nobody is watching, they have it all under control, they didn't miss a trick, even when someone tries to jump the queue! Well done!

Never had a problem. Yes, sometimes queues are longer but ferries need maintenence at times and traffic causes back ups. Nice to be able to relax behind the wheel and let someone else move you for a while!

Have always enjoyed taking a drip on the ferry across to Cornwall whilst staying in Devon. However now with a 12 year old who loves looking for Pokemon we just go on there to go across the water to get rare Pokemon.

When the bridge is busy or you want to get straight to the heart of Plymouth from Cornwall, this is the way to go. Three huge ferries on at busy times so usually no queue.

All 3 ferries were running - our ferries, we travelled to Torpoint and returned as foot passengers - you do not have to pay as a foot passenger. Ferries run on time.The crossing is quite quick & the crew/staff are pleasant.Good facilities for both foot & car passengers, includinding the toilets. Very good
