This is a great ferry ride over to Mount Edgcumbe. The staff always friendly and helpful. This boat can get very busy especially at the weekend but you can take dogs and cycles and prams on here. Only takes about ten minutes and you have to pay both ways, but still cheap, run every half hour

Always on time and staff very patient and helpful with everyone. Assisting people with prams, elderly or disability. Or even clumsy people like myself.

This ferry is a great way to get over to the royal William yard Plymouth. It's only one pound fifty fare and it's very good value for money

We are often drawn to the Cremyll Ferry on our (frequent) trips to Plmouth. The trip is charming, picturesque & historical. Somehow, we always seem to miss the opening hours of the Mount Edgecumbe tea rooms!

An interesting day out, the ferry from Cremyll to The Royal William Yard Plymouth. The Captain held the ferry as a bus arrived, allowing the passengers to board the boat and not have to wait for a whole half hour for the next crossing. This summed up the attitude of the crew who were very helpful. Some nice views of... More

Running every 1/2 hour it's great to get across the water to the pub in Cornwall. Very friendly staff and reasonable price at £1.50 for adults and 75p for kids and the dog went free. Lovely just for a ride and to get the views

A frequent running and interesting way to travel from Cremyll to Plymouth with amazing and varied views depending on tide and weather. The ferry was well used and seemed to be quite busy at some moments especially when coming from the Plymouth side. It was well priced and it was good to see that dogs were allowed on.

A good way to get to Royal William Yard from Cornwall, and not to have to worry about Plymouth traffic!
