Excellent service, thoroughly recommend this way to travel into Gunwharf. £10 to park, up to 8 people in vehicle, 20 minute boat ride past navy dockyard and return. This service is unfortunately limited to the summer months, so check out if available out of season.

This seemed like a fun idea, probably takes longer than the bus or driving though. The commentary was interesting and the guy knew his ships. It delivers you directly to Gun wharf. I would do this again if I was having a day out.

Rather than drive into Gunwharf Quays we figured we'd try the park and sail - on a water taxi. Initially I was a bit dubious, but after a short bus trip from the car park to the water bus, we were politely helped on board...More
