The day to day run of the ferry is as a commuter vessel serving the sites along the river in Bristol. It is not as some people seem to think from the comments a tourist boat trip. However I was offered a commentary on my way up to Temple Meads by the woman on the boat which I declined as I was more interested in looking at things myself. To get from point A to B this is a great way to travel, especially if the sun is out. The boats travel at a nice pace and the staff are very friendly and helpful letting you know where they are stopping and expelling the routes and timetables, as well as aiding other people with limited mobility or those with pushchairs. I paid £5 for a student all day ticket which meant I could hop on and off as I pleased and there are other discounts available for caravan club members, staying at the campsite and the elderly. Very pleasant experience all round, just make sure you are using the correct company, these are the blue and yellow boats with the little ferry flags on the front which are the actual Bristol Ferry Boats. They also offer trips which are more suited to tourists with commentaries and these it seems have to be booked in advance with details online.
