Mevagissey to Fowey Passenger Ferry 2003
The Fowey to Mevagissey passenger ferry, is a 360hp single screw Offshore 105 licensed by the MCA to carry 35 passengers.
The service runs daily between Fowey and Mevagissey from May through September, weather and sea conditions permitting. The journey takes approximately 35 minutes.
As well as offering a convenient public transport link between the two towns, it offers a great day out to holidaymakers based on one or other side of St Austell Bay. Both locations are ideal for a day's shopping, exploring and/or walking. Fares remain at last year's levels, a return trip costing £7.50 for adults, £5 for children and £20 for a family of four.
