Great trip, on time, clean boat and very helpful staff on board. We travelled with our 7 month old baby and it was a lovely day out, would highly recommend.

We were very well looked after by the crew and very much enjoyed the stunning views of the coastline. About 40 min ride for reasonable price.

Family and dog all aboard! The crew were helpful enough to tell everyone the boat was off to Mevagissey not Polruan- which meant a few people disembarked before we set off, just as well! Really scenic boat ride, takes around 35-40 minutes, covers come down...More

A fantastic way to get from Mevagissey to Fowey(and back) Lovely views of Mevagissey and the coastline. Also a lot quicker than the bus but quite expensive.

If you ask the crew before getting on they,ll give you an honest answer whether its choppy or not. We dont wish for anyone to be sick, hence if its looking a little rough, we wont sail for the day.
