This service offers great value for a return trip from Torquay to Brixham. A beautiful boat ride across the bay, and commentary thrown in! Weather reliant, but worth the trip when it's good. Cannot fault.

Wanted to use this Bank Holiday weekend but not running for the 3 days ! Hoped to avoid bank holiday traffic around the bay and use the ferry. Rediculous not running at such a busy time. Unreliable.

Loved it. I said to myself years ago that I will go there again when I am next passing. Though it took a long time to come back, it was worth it

Used this service every day both for long trips and short. Excellent staff and useful information. Great wildlife trip and even saw a seal. When back in Torquay I will be back on the ferry again.

This is the first time we have ever taken this ferry across to Brixham. What a superb trip on the boat. Good commentary and a very enjoyable trip both there and the return all for £3.

I recently visited Brixham from Torquay on the ferry. It is very good value, comfortable and comes with interesting commentary.

Rather than drive we went over to Brixham on the Western Lady ferry service. Good clean boats, 30 minute crossing and friendly crew. The Captains are very informative and provide an interesting and sometimes comical commentary throughout. Much better than driving or the bus and...More

In Brixham there is a long new walkway down but in Torquay there are steep stone steps which are wet so i would advise against it.
