Great staff - friendly and fun. Had a bit of an incident as boat ran out of fuel, but some friendly folk towed us back in and the boss got very told off by his staff.

The ferry operating between Helford Village to North Helford is a short but enjoyable ride, it is also a necessity to those who have to travel across routinely. Every year holiday makers embark on this picturesque crossing to enjoy both sides of the river. My...More
