the crossing is short but the ferry is comfortable and spacious so it is not unpleasant. It costs £1.50 for a single journey and you can get back easily during the day. 'getting on & off ' the boat is not a problem

We visited The Spit at Mudeford twice this summer and rode the ferry in both directions across the river mouth. The staff manning the boat were friendly and we enjoyed the ride.
