Arranged a special day out on our family weekend away. Arrived at the quayside to find the office not open. Someone on the Mawes Ferry office said they weren’t opening today as the owner was ill, which he said was a regular occurrence. Awful! Avoid.

Booking system online is very simple and secure and you get regular text updates to remind you of your booking. I would recommend researching tide times for the area as low tides could limit your routes for exploring. I'm no expert of the area but...More
