Exciting News: New Saltash Ferry Service Launched!

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of a new ferry service connecting Saltash with Plymouth’s Royal William Yard. This service, initiated by Plymouth Boat Trips in collaboration with Saltash Town Council, started on May 24th and promises to be a significant addition to our local transport options.

About the Ferry Service

The new ferry departs every 90 minutes, with the first boat leaving at 9:45 AM and the last at 6:00 PM. The ferry has a capacity of 70 passengers and offers a scenic and sustainable way to travel between Saltash and Plymouth. The journey takes approximately 30 minutes, providing a relaxing alternative to road travel.

Fares are set at £5 per journey for adults and £2.50 for children aged 3-15, with free travel for children under two. Bicycles can also be taken aboard for an additional £2.50​.

Benefits of the Service

This new route is expected to enhance connectivity and boost local tourism and commerce. By reducing road traffic and offering a pleasant travel experience, the ferry supports both environmental sustainability and the local economy.

Ben Squire, owner of Plymouth Boat Trips, emphasized the importance of this service, highlighting its potential to reduce congestion and provide a more enjoyable travel option​ (Read the Cornish times article here)​.
