We went on the trip to Greenway, first on the Fairmile, then on the Christie Belle and then back on the vintage bus. The whole tour was well organised and carried out, with all aboard being made aware of the arrangements for onward transmission to the next destination etc. The crew on the boat were lovely, really caring of their...

We took the Fairmile trip to Dartmouth, the water was calm, the crew were calm. It was a most enjoyable experience. We transferred to a river boat to go to Greenway, this also was fine. Our trip back from Greenway was in an ancient bus. It was huge fun. A special mention about the laddies in the booths who sell... More

We joined the queue without a ticket in Brixham thinking we could buy a ticket onboard as per the website. However, all sailings were full (this was at 4pm) so we had to book with a rival. Never again. Lucky to get to torquay.

Thank you for taking the time to review. Are you for real? If a bus is full, it's full, if an aeroplane is full, it's full. The same goes for a train. If you could read properly, you would clearly see on our website that you must book online to avoid disappointment or at our kiosks. What a stupid idiotic... More

Just did this cruise on the Fairmile from Torquay via Brixham to Dartmouth and then the 1hr river dart cruise. Great value at £10 but more importantly an excellent day out. The crew were friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. The commentary from the skipper was excellent and very informative as well as amusing at times as were the other crew members.... More

We booked a trip with the Greenway Ferry & Pleasure Cruises which we understood was a 1 hour trip up the River Dart with a commentary pointing out places of interest. However, when we got to the Greenway jetty, 90% of the passengers disembarked and then roughly the same number embarked. This took up a hefty slice of the cruise.... More

We booked the trip on the Fairmile from Brixham to Dartmouth and on to Slapton Sands - the trip was excellent and the crew were very friendly and informative. The story of what happened at Slapton Sands was particularly interesting and certainly had us captivated! We sat out on deck when we could (weather permitting!) - we would thoroughly recommend...

I love taking the ferry between Brixham and Torquay, It was on my 4year olds hitlist too so i'm not the only one. The folks running the ferries are helpful and make sure you and kids get off and on ok. Great Trips.
