such a great service and always on time and reliable and takes no time at all to get to the other side, only downside is it was still winter hours so we had to get a taxi back to Mountbatten after 1815hrs.

£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.

A convenient ferry connects Mount Batten to the harbour jetty (from which a number of sight-seeing cruises also depart). In the summer season the ferry crosses every half hour in each direction – on the hour and half hour from Mount Batten and quarter past...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
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?
Can I take my dog on this ferry?
